About the class

We introduce Java to middle school and high school students using an environment designed for fast iterations - we write our text-based Java code, compile it, and immediately see the results on-screen.

Students will learn all of the important basics of coding in this class - syntax, variables, branching, loops, arrays, and functions (in part 2, object-oriented programming is covered) - as they draw text, images, and shapes to the screen.

Emphasis is placed on acquiring the necessary problem solving skills for creating interactive, animated programs.

No prior programming experience or knowledge is required, or expected - this is a great place to start!

 

For ages 12 & up.

About Think Space Studio 

Our Westchester, NY based enrichment classes for middle school and high school teens teach the fundamentals of computer programming in a casual (but high-energy!), hands-on, small group environment. We focus on small achievable projects and goals to drive the learning experience - from making lightning, fire and optical illusions to creating games, puzzles, and programs - writing the code is never an end in and of itself, but is always a step on the way to making awesome things!

We teach the basic building blocks of computer programming from the ground up, using real-world text based programming languages like Java, JavaScript, Python, Swift, and HTML/CSS. Along the way, we invariably touch on general Computer Science concepts like binary & hexadecimal numbers, coding style, computer architecture, data structures, and a lot more.

Class sizes are intentionally kept small to encourage participation, and to allow the students to learn at a good pace while still being able to receive 1 to 1 help.
