Course Overview

We teach Java using the Greenfoot platform, developed at the University of Kent. Greenfoot makes coding interactive, easy and fun, providing a supportive environment for the creation of 2D graphical games and simulations. Students will learn coding concepts such as variables, functions and classes, as they go from game consumer to game creator.

Our goal is for each participant to feel confident coding, as they undertake original projects and gain familiarity with the Java environment. We also show students the tools and resources available so they can continue learning and developing independently with Java after the course.

This is an excellent first coding course for teens aged 12+ and no previous programming knowledge is required. Younger gamers looking for an introduction to computer science fundamentals should check out our Video Game Design camp while teens might also be interested in our Teen Coding with Python course.

This is an online learning course led by an expert tutor who is fully DBS checked. You will join a small group of other young learners online, working together and making lots of progress in fun and interactive sessions. All sessions are monitored and recorded for safety.

This course is also available in part-time formats.
