Intro to Computer Science with Java


Class Description:

This is our core introductory high school-level course in computer science, taught in Java. Students learn through hour-long lectures including notes on new concepts and demo projects. Although students still focus on making fun projects alongside graded problem sets, they may find it beneficial to attend our homework help hours to cement their skills. After 6 months - 1 year of our classes students will be coding at a college level.


Age 13+ or instructor approval. 30 wpm typing speed. Familiarity with algebra.

Kids Coding Sample Projects

These are examples of projects that students create as they grow their Java coding skills in CS00a

Doodle Jump: Click to Play! The goal of the game is to keep on the moving platforms, and not fall off the screen. There are timer for the platforms that dictates its' movement, speed, and direction.

Orbits: A click creates a planet (white circle). The red circle is the sun. The blue line visually shows the velocity effector (points to where the planet it is going), and the red line shows the acceleration of the planet

Orbital physics. The sun (red circle) affecting the motion of planets (white circles generated by clicking on canvas). The blue and red lines indicate the velocity and acceleration vectors of the planets.

Our Proprietary In-Browser Coding Platform.

The KTBYTE team developed the KTCoder™ with our students in mind! Most coding classes require software downloads, which is difficult and a hassle for young students. Our platform supports Processing, Javablocks™, HTML/CSS, and a bunch of libraries (like Soundcipher and Fisica!). This revolutionary all-in-one coding platform supports our interactive online classes, our specialized curriculum, and (most importantly) our student's passion for learning.
Office Hours with Teacher's Assistants
