Annual online program (1 hour/week) or Two-week Summer Camp
Our program blends computational thinking practices into the learning process of Java.
Your child will be confident and ready for the AP Computer Science class.
We use BlueJ to develop Java programs and run them.
Please install the Zoom application (Zoom Desktop Client) and the BlueJ Java Development Environment application on your child’s PC.
And ensure that the instructor can see the BlueJ application screen with the screen-sharing function of the Zoom application to support your child fully.
Zoom application: https://zoom.us/download
Please use a PC, Mac, or other devices that can run the Zoom and BlueJ applications.
Old Chromebooks and tablets tend to have performance problems and hinder practice.
We recommend that your child has an additional device to view the Zoom screen while using the entire screen of the primary device for programming.
Your child can benefit significantly by taking the following programs before taking this program, though they are not prerequisites.
