Adventures in Programming starts 2nd Quarter!

This weekly club for computing novices will introduce you to the exciting world of computer programming. Through a series of hands-on programming projects and programming puzzles you’ll discover the fascinating concepts and practical applications of computer programming using the popular JavaTM programming language. Along the way, we’ll participate in fast-paced programming challenges as you maneuver a virtual robot through an obstacle course. Do you like to solve puzzles? Do you enjoy building things? If you do, you’ll love this club!

This club will meet weekly for one hour during lunch and Lyceum. Each meeting will include a 20 minutes presentation of Computer Science concepts (during which students can eat lunch) and a hands-on session where students actually work on programming projects. Program Fee: $10
