Class Information

Are you interested in learning programming fundamentals? Are you considering taking Advanced Programming (AP CS) at your school? This camp will introduce students to the fundamental building blocks of programming and problem solving using the Processing language. Processing is very similar to Java so itís a great language to learn to get a jump start on concepts youíll learn in AP CS! Processing also makes it easy to create electronic art and animations so itís a fun first language to learn! This camp assumes no prior experience with programming, but should also be fun for students who have not used Processing or Java before. Campers will complete hands-on labs and projects in a problem-based curriculum. (For SPA students, successful completion of this camp will waive the prerequisite for Advanced Programming).

NOTE: All students should bring a bag lunch each day. SPA is a nut-safe campus so do not bring lunches that include nuts.

Teacher: Kate Lockwood is the Director of Computer Science and Engineering and Kirsten Hoogenakker oversees the Design Lab and teaches engineering in the Upper School at SPA.
