2022 Fall Live Online Class

  • 09/17 to 12/10  12 Classes Saturday 3:30pm-5:00pm $375/term No class on Nov. 26Location: Online15

    This course is Part 1 of AP Computer Science A: Fundamental of Java. AP Computer Science A is one year curriculum for high school students. Sunshine has split it into part 1 and part 2 which usually can be finished in 2 terms.

    Prerequisite: No previous knowledge of Java is expected

    AP Computer Science A
    Advanced Placement Computer Science A is an AP Computer Science course and examination offered by the College Board to high school students as an opportunity to earn college credit for a college-level computer science course. AP Computer Science A is meant to be the equivalent of a first-semester course in computer science. The AP exam currently tests students on their knowledge of Java. Java Programming Language is one of the most popular programming languages particularly for client–server web applications. Java is high-level, class-based, object-oriented programming language that is designed to have as few implementation dependencies as possible. It is a general-purpose programming language intended to let programmers write once, run anywhere, meaning that compiled Java code can run on all platforms that support Java without the need for recompilation. Java applications are typically
    compiled to bytecode that can run on any Java virtual machine regardless of the underlying computer architecture. 

    AP Computer Science A - Part 1: Fundamental of Java

    Topics to be covered:
    Unit 1: Primitive Types
    Unit 2: Using Objects
    Unit 3: Boolean Expressions and if Statements
    Unit 4: Iteration
    Unit 5: Writing Classes

    AP Computer Science A - Part 2: Advanced Concepts in Java

    Topics to be covered:
    Unit 6: Array
    Unit 7: ArrayList
    Unit 8: 2D Array
    Unit 9: Inheritance
    Unit 10: Recursion

    Note: Each class will follow a format: Computer science Concepts, Programming activity, Quiz.

    Science Bowl Camp for Grade 5-7

    Launched in 1991, the National Science Bowl (NSB) is a highly competitive science education and academic event among teams of high school and middle school students. Students will face off in a fast-paced, question-and-answer format, and to be tested on a range of science disciplines including biology, chemistry, earth and space science, physics, energy, and math. The winner of the academic portion of the Regional Science Bowl wins an all-expenses-paid trip to Washington DC to compete in the National Science Bowl.

    This is a great opportunity for students who are passionate about science and engineering to show off their talents in this academic competition. In preparing middle school Science Bowl Competition, schools will select students to form teams in fall and train the teams for regional competition in February.

    Sunshine’s middle school Science Bowl Summer Camp will lead students going through several STEM Texts and practicing middle school sample questions provided by National Science Bowl® (NSB), preparing students for their schools’ Science Bowl team selection in fall.
