JAVA FOR KIDS

Amazing how technology in education has evolved!!! Kids are now coding.  Animations from inspirations drawn from cartoons, games and other leisure activities are now the fundamental inspirational banks for such programming activities like modifying Minecraft, building LEGO Mind storms, programming NAO robots, and more. And they are doing it in Java.

Volunteer computer professionals led sessions on a range of topics, to include child friendly beginner-level programming languages like Scratch and Alice, as well as moderately more complex ones like Greenfoot. Advanced learners could pick from sessions on more advanced tools such as Arduino, LEGO Mindstorms, Minecraft Modding.

Building a Java Community

Java is a great place to start, and Oracle offers numerous websites and tools to teach young people how to program using Java, based on the learner’s age and aptitude. These range from Scratch (for ages 5 to 15), a simple programming language with a drag- and-drop interface, to Alice (less simple for ages 8 to 22), a 3D educational software tool with a drag-and-drop interface for creating animations; to Greenfoot (less simple, for ages 13 to 25), a visual 2D educational software tool with a code editor for creating games and simulations.

Scratch, Alice, and Greenfoot are all Java-based tools that require no previous programming experience. Once students have cleared these initial programming hurdles, they can then move on to BlueJ, a professional Java development tool with a simplified interface for beginners, and then later to the NetBeans BlueJ Edition IDE (Integrated Development Environment).

Java stars in the making

Teaching children how to program must be a priority in a society where technology is becoming more and more important, the program aims to teach and inspire kids about computer programming while they are having fun.  We need to train our kids in technology, and have them stay engaged in technology at an early age. If we catch them raw and show them, it’s fun.

Make Games with Java

Using Java, one of the world’s most popular coding languages, you can build apps and even games with graphics. Design your game from start to finish and advance your computer science mindset. As you empathize with the user experience, you’ll develop your UX/UI chops, creating content with which people will choose to interact. Bring your game to life with visual arts, share your unique vision with code, and dive into the art of game programming.

Code Apps with Java

Learn the fundamentals of Java, one of the most relevant and long-standing programming languages in the world today. Java has dozens of uses from game development to business apps. No matter where you are in your coding journey—whether just starting out, building a résumé for colleges to fight over, or getting ready to ace the AP Computer Science exam—you’ll hone your Java skills with console applications and programming challenges.
