Course Overview

On this course, teens aged 13-17 will be introduced to Java, the language that powers Android phones, enabled Uber and AirBnB to disrupt their relevant markets and allowed Mojang to create the world’s best selling video game with Minecraft.

Led by our code-loving instructors, students will be taught key programming concepts and how to apply them in exciting ways. They will start by learning how to use Java as a general purpose tool to solve maths and other problems, discover the role of Java in the multi-billion-dollar tech industry and along the way learn the skills they need to build their own projects at home.

Using industry standard tools, students will learn how to set up their own projects and develop them further independently.
Students will be introduced to the concepts of Object Oriented Programming through Classes and Objects, ideas which have underpinned virtually all major programming projects for the last 30+ years. These concepts are also fundamental to the way that Java as a language functions.

Challenging, interactive and lots of fun, this course does more than just teach the fundamentals. It unlocks the world of programming for young people – and sparks the interest that makes them want to keep on exploring it.

If they want to keep building their programming knowledge, they could move on to our Teen Python courses, or delve into the cutting edge world of Machine Learning with our Senior Adventures in Artificial Intelligence course.
