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 course is also available in part-time and online formats.
