Students will be introduced to computer programming using the Processing programming language. Processing is a beginner-friendly, text-based programming language. Students will learn to create their own interactive art and games with computer code. Processing is a free download so students can continue to practice at home. Processing is based upon Java, so skills learned in this class will be immediately transferable to working in other programming languages.
No prior computer programming experience is necessary.
Director: Elisa Heinricher
Note: Campers who complete Introduction to Computer Programming are eligible to take Introduction to Arduino Programming, August 1-5, 2016.
