 This class is an introduction to software programming using the Java™ and the Scratch programming language. Students will learn the fundamentals of programming along with the current technological developments. The focus is on developing a logical algorithm to any given solution. The course is designed for students with some programming experience, but if you have none and are motivated you will do fine.
