Coding games with java
During one half of each day, students learn the Java programming language by building an original video game. Fire Tech use the Greenfoot tool to facilitate building and de-bugging programmes, providing immediate visual feedback as students explore object-oriented programming. During the first part of the course, students work with expert Fire Tech instructors to master key computing concepts as they build a model game. In the last half of the course they are coached and supported as they create their own original game. Student's need to bring their own laptop. There's a maximum of 8 students per class and students get to take home a certificate with personal tutor feedback as well as a Fire Tech t-shirt.
In the other half of the day, students will take part in English language lessons provided by our professional English teachers. Lessons focus on conversational English, active participation and project work. Teachers use tech themes during class where students will learn about keywords in tech, as well as exploring tech-related topics such as innovation and marketing. English classes are designed to be fun, relevant and accelerate learning throughout the camp. An entry test groups students by age and ability at the start of the week. Students get lots of individual feedback, including a written report and an English certificate to take home.
