This camp is the second in a 2-course holiday bootcamp sequence
designed to give students a firm grounding in the Java programming language, which features heavily in the written and practical assessment components of both the International Baccalaureate (IB) and Advanced Placement (AP) curricula. Prospective and current iGCSE students in Years 9/10
will also find the Java skills they pick up useful when they continue on to IB Computer Science in Year 11/12
(a common course progression at many international high schools in Singapore).
Over 30 hours of instruction, the Java 1 & 2 holiday camps will cover the following topics:
- Control flow, primitive data types and variable
- Searching and Sorting Algorithms
Please note that the Java 1
and Java 2 holiday camps cover material equivalent to that covered in the first 12 lessons of our weekly IB Computer Science tutoring programme, and are an ideal way to prepare for students about to embark on IB Computer Science after the holidays.
