Java Classes for Kids: Take the Course Online or a Summer Camp

Java has become one of the most popular programming languages in the world and is used by brands including Google, Amazon, and Oracle. It’s widely used in many industries, including finance, healthcare, and education, and it’s this ubiquitous nature which makes it such a great language for kids to learn as it can help their future career prospects. 

But it’s fun too, which is why our Java classes for kids are so popular. Aimed at 11 to 16 year olds, the classes can either be taken online using our specialist virtual teaching software, or at a Java summer camp near you. You can check classroom locations here

Our kids Java classes help children learn the essential literacy of the digital age. This fast-paced course will teach your child to code, edit, and problem-solve in a structured and methodical manner from the ground up. 

Once they have mastered the core coding constructs, we present them with oodles of fun practical exercises and projects for variety of different scenarios. The secret to becoming a good Java coder is not merely in knowing coding constructs, it is more about how and where you use them in delivering elegant solutions to problems.

Why should kids learn Java in our classes?

There are many reasons why kids should learn Java in our classes. Firstly, Java is an object-oriented programming language that teaches kids about the basics of programming concepts. It will also help kids develop problem-solving skills and logical thinking, which can be useful in many different areas of life as well as school. 

Java is also used in many different industries, so learning how to code with it can lead to opportunities for children in the future. Finally, Java is a fun language to learn, and kids can create their own games and applications using Java, which can be a great way to express their creativity.

We’ve previously blogged in more detail about our approach to kids learning Java and what they can take from it. 

Java is also steppingstone to other programming languages

Java is a versatile programming language that can serve as a steppingstone for kids who want to progress onto further programming languages. Understanding Java can help kids grasp the fundamentals of computer science and programming, which can be applied to other languages.

It shares similarities with other languages, such as C++ and C# so learning Java in structured classes can help kids understand the syntax, structure, and logic of these languages. It can also help them understand the differences between languages, such as their strengths and weaknesses. 

As an object-oriented programming (OOP) language, it helps kids can gain a better understanding of OOP concepts, such as classes, objects, inheritance, and polymorphism. These concepts can be applied to other languages, such as Python or Ruby, which also use OOP.

In summary, Java classes for kids can be a valuable steppingstone for children who want to learn other programming languages.
