Greenfoot Java class materials
The following class through the De Anza College Summer Extended Year Program
is planned for Summer 2015 -- enrollment opens in February 2015
Greenfoot Games and Simulations
De Anza College Summer Extended Year Program
4 Weeks, Monday - Friday, 1 hour per day
Late June to mid July, 2015
(no class July 4)
Entering grades 7th-9th - Class size is limited to 16 students.
Greenfoot provides a framework for easily programming interactive 2-D simulations and games based on a World and Actor model. Programming concepts and techniques are introduced and practiced through a series of fun programming examples such as creating physics simulations, simple interactive games, and programming a wheeled "Finch" robot.
Students will use the Java programming language to define objects, variables and methods for implementing their simulations and games. Class sessions include time to work on the programs with help from the instructor. Some homework time will be required to complete the lessons.
Students should have a USB flash drive to take their class work home. Cost includes materials and classroom use of laptop computers for each student. Students should not bring their personal laptop computers to class.
Instructor: Steve Putz. This class will be at Kennedy Middle School. To enroll, see www.extendedyear.deanza.edu
