Students in this summer course learn Java, one of the most powerful and high-level programming languages in the world. In fact, Java is the language most emphasized by universities within their computer science major.
This is a beginner course and is tailored for people who have little to no programming experience. Our instruction starts at the basics but quickly transitions into high-level programming topics such as object-oriented programming and recursion. By the end of the course, students reinforce what they've learned by creating an original portfolio-ready product using the Java language. Additionally, students will gain a head start in the AP Computer Science class as our class teaches all the topics that the AP Computer Science class tests on.
Prerequisites & Ages: The program is ideal for high school students with a strong interest in coding. Prior coding/programming experience is not required, but students must be comfortable with computer basics.
I learned a lot of Java in only 9 days. The instructor was a high school teacher and he's been teaching coding for almost 20 years. He was very patient with everyone and made sure everyone understood the content. We were given breaks and a nice long lunchtime. There were a lot of topics covered but it wasn't overwhelming.
We covered a lot of topics in Java, starting from basic syntactical things to creating our own custom datatypes. I feel very confident in my Java abilities after beginning the program with basically no knowledge of the language.
The instructor was super clear when explaining the basics of the Java language and extremely helpful when answering questions.

Java is a high-level programming language first created by Sun Microsystems. It is a general use programming language and is the preferred choice by universities as the primary language for a computer science major. Java is used for software development, web applications, and applets.
Used by Fortune 500 Companies: Java is a powerful language that has less syntax than C++, which was formally used by most companies. Additionally, Java is an extremely portable language that can be easily used for other programming applications. On top of that, Java can be executed on a Mac or PC because of the Java Virtual Machine (JVM).
Fast & Optimized Performance: Java is a statically typed language, which means that it runs faster than a dynamically typed language because all variables are clearly assigned.
Prepare for AP & College Classes: Since AP Computer Science A focuses a great deal on Java, taking NextGen’s Java course will help students gain a head-start in their AP Computer Science course. NextGen’s first two weeks cover more than 75% of the entire AP Computer Science curriculum. Upon successful completion of AP Computer Science, students are able to place out of introductory courses in college!
Community: There is a notably large community of people who code using Java. The more people that use a language, the more updates it will have and the more solutions to problems and bugs will be posted online. Java is the second most used language on Stack Overflow and the second most tagged language on GitHub.
Our Java summer course is open to all high school students with no math or coding pre-requisite necessary. This course is perfect for any student looking to gain some experience in the coding or engineering space. This camp will allow students to excel in their AP Computer Science classes and place out of entry-level college courses.
This course is also great for any college students looking to change or declare their major! The activities and material covered throughout the two-week course will help ease the transition into a Computer Science or Engineering major.
