Top Rated Online Java Coding for Kids Classes

Developed by expert AP computer science educators, these live online AP coding classes also meet the requirements for the APCS exams as defined by the College Board.

1. Intro to Java Programming Class Online: Part 1

In this live online, expert-led class you'll learn fundamental Java concepts, discover your identity as a software engineer, and use debugging strategies and code reviews to improve your programming skills. Students also develop an understanding of data encapsulation and object-oriented design decisions. In addition, students use one-dimensional (1D) arrays to store lists of primitive values and object references. Finally, students improve decision-making in their programs using relational and logical operators to evaluate primitive values and object references and use the Math class to perform calculations and generate random numbers.

2. Intro to Java Programming Class Online: Part 2

This is the second part of the introduction class. In these live online sessions, students use two-dimensional (2D) arrays to expand storage and organization capabilities in their programs, static methods and the Math class, creating image filters, arrayLists and algorithms, working with strings, as well as basic natural language processing techniques.

3. AP CSA Test Prep Class Online

This course offers a thorough review of all the areas required by AP CSA exam, such as data types, objects, iteration, classes, array, 2D array, inheritance, and recursion. We will also go through format and strategies for every section of the exam. Using problem samples from past AP CSA exams, students will get to enforce what they have learned and practice test strategies to achieve the best score. The course is fully aligned with the latest College Board standards for AP Computer Science A.

1. Python for AI Class

Python stands as a high-level coding language favored by industry giants such as Netflix and Google. It finds applications in web development, game design, app creation, machine learning, and much more. This live online class not only covers the fundamentals of Python coding, but also places a strong emphasis on the elements of Python most relevant to Artificial Intelligence, including data structures and libraries. If your child is keen on exploring advanced computer science and diving into one of the most sought-after programming languages, this small group class is the ideal starting point.

2. Computer Science Principles

You might have learned coding for a while. But have you ever thought about how do computers work exactly? How does it understand the code we write? How do computers talk to each other? How to keep our data secure? There are many fun questions like that.

In this Computer Science Principles class, we introduce students to a wide range of important fundamental topics in computer science such as binary, encryption, networking, and more. It is a great step for learning more about system and architectural aspects of computers.
