Purdue University is proud to offer to all interested high school students an online version of our introductory object-oriented programming course. The class will consist of content from our first semester programming course for computer science majors, CS 180, as well as supplemental material designed to help students prepare to take the AP Computer Science A exam. This is a Java programming course, with a focus on object-oriented programming and concurrency.
Purdue University will be hosting “BoilerCode”, the first high school hackathon in the school’s history, on April 11th, 2015. The event will include both tutorials on how to build apps using MIT’s AppInventor and an open period for students to create their own apps using the tool. Participants will be assisted by student volunteers from Purdue’s Department of Computer Science.
For the first time in the history of the Purdue Computer Science Department, Indiana high school students will have the opportunity to take a free, online, non-credit course to develop their programming skills. The course is designed to approximate an introductory college computer science course, and to prepare students for the AP Computer Science A exam.
