Computer Programming

Education Unlimited's Computer Programming offerings go beyond simply interacting with a computer. Instead, campers will dive into writing their own codes to create executable software that run on their computers. While each programming language has its own unique strengths and uses, Java and Python are two popular and indispensable languages for any programmer. 

Python: Let's code!

The campers will learn about algorithms, loops, debugging, conditionals, and events in activities and in programming using Python, the high-level programming language. Engaging activities both on the computer and off will prepare the students to dive into other programming languages moving forward. Campers will spend their time learning about the programming concepts and then applying them using Python. They will use their creativity to create projects while exploring the process of coding.

Java Programming 1

The campers will learn how to program in Java. They will learn about Object-Oriented Programming, defining classes, variables, and methods, basic I/O, and polymorphism. They will also learn how to use Git, the revision control system, and store and access their projects on Github. Basic commands and the Eclipse IDE will also be covered. By the end, campers will have a working knowledge of Java and be able to create simple Java programs. High school Java 1 students will enjoy learning a few basics in other programming languages, including Java, C, C++, and Scheme.

  • Stanford                    July 22 - July 28            Rising 9th - 12th grade

Java Programming 2

Java 2 assumes the campers have some familiarity with Java coming in. Ability to create and test simple Java classes is a good foundation. Java 2 campers will learn about Data Structures and Algorithms. They will learn about stacks, heaps, queues, and trees, and implement them in Java. Many different sorting algorithms, and their implementations, will be covered. Campers will use Git to store and revise their projects, and the Eclipse IDE to develop. A survey of other programming languages, including Java, C, C++, and Scheme, will give campers a feel for the types of projects they can explore going forward. * Note: Java Programming 2 requires working knowledge of the content in Java Programming 1 or successful completion of the Java Programming 1 camp)
