JAVA CODING FOR FTC

Overview

Age: 9th Grade & up
Dates: July 22-Aug 9

During this three-week program, from 9am-4pm, campers will learn how to program in Java to control a FIRST Tech Challenge robot. By the end of the 3 weeks, kids will program the robots to both move autonomously, based on sensor input, as well as to operate based on input from a remote control. To participate in this camp, kids must complete Learn Java (from Codecademy), a free programming course, before the first day of the camp.

This preparatory work could take 15-20 hours, depending on experience level, so please plan ahead. This program teaches specific skills needed to program as a part of a FIRST Tech Challenge team, but is also fun and valuable by itself. Space is limited.
