Introduction to Programming CCL017 GRADES 6-12
This course is the perfect fit for students who will enter advanced placement programming classes in high school and will expose participants to object-based programming. Working with a popular language, students will become familiar with the basic functions of the language and work toward developing both an independent and a collaborative project that showcases the skills that have been developed. This course will prepare students for more advanced programming in the future. No class 7/4.

Introduction to Programming Part 2 CCL015 GRADES 6-12
This course continues the fundamentals of programming by using game design and development as an example of the power of programming languages like Java. Students will learn standard programming skills used in the creation of interactive software, including event handlers and concurrently running threads, and will consider the player’s perspective, making game-play enjoyable and user-friendly. Prerequisite: Students should be familiar with c-style programming and have taken an introductory programming class, such as Introduction to Programming Languages or Java from the DCC Summer Computer Academy. (30 Hours)

Computer-Aided Design CCL020 GRADES 6-12
Bridges, skyscrapers, tunnels, houses, soccer stadiums and toys have one thing in
common: they all can be designed using AutoCAD. This powerful tool is used by architects,
engineers, landscapers and product designers to create amazing structures, machines
and environments. Students will design and create a variety of projects including
a toy box, birdhouse, robot and their own dream house. Students will also learn to
build and model some of their designs using Inventor, a program that creates 3-d models
from two-dimensional designs. Students will be challenged to design structures from
their imagination and build actual prototypes.
No class 7/4.

Animation Essentials CCL024 GRADES 5-8
Students learn the animation process using both freeware and professional animation
software. Computer assisted (2D) and computer generated (3D) animation will be covered
as students progress from simple 2D animated cartoons to complex
3-dimensional creations. Learning keyframing and tweening techniques prepare students for more advanced animations for cartoons and video games. No class 7/4.

Computer Hardware CCL007 GRADES 6-12
Students will discover the inner workings of computer architecture and learn the hardware components of a personal computer. They also learn to assemble and troubleshoot PCs in class. Students can, if they choose, select, purchase and assemble the components for their own computer to take home and keep. Software installation and basic networking will be covered. Several classes also will be spent introducing students to “modding” techniques to truly personalize their own machines. No class 7/4.
