javaprogrammingJava Programming
Tuesdays, June 4 and 11 from 3:30 to 5 pm

Join UConn computer science professor Walter Krawec for this two-part series where you will learn basic Java Programming by creating a miniature game! For its creation, you will learn several important programming concepts such as syntax, variables, loops, and basic object-oriented programming. While we use this game as a motivational platform, the concepts you learn will be applicable to other programming tasks.

No prior knowledge of programming is required. You may want to bring a USB flash drive to save your work to bring home with you, but it is not required.

Free and open to all students in grades 5 to 12. Please register.

All programs are for students entering grades 7 to 12 unless noted otherwise. Please register for all programs unless otherwise stated.
