Java OO

Build world-class Applications

Unlock your potential! In this course students learn object oriented development using Java™. They understand OO concepts such as inheritance, polymorphism, programming constructs and understand their practical uses. They learn and become comfortable with entire syntax stack of Java™ language and work with Java™ platform using Java Development Kit (JDK)™ and Eclipse IDE™ solving real-world application problems. This program sets the stage for AP - Computer Science pursuits and gets them prepared for 21st Century careers.

Program Summary
Java™ technology powers more than 4.5 billion devices worldwide-Android™ devices, Web cams, navigation systems, ATMs, smart cards, supercomputers, the Internet and more and it's more accessible than ever. Experience an interactive, hands-on approach to learning Java™, one of today's most widely used computer-programming languages. Tap into your creativity by using this incredibly versatile and powerful programming language. Unlock the mysterious power of code! Learn the fundamentals of Java™ one of the most relevant, in-demand programming languages on the job market today. Java has many applications from game development to business applications and 3D imaging. It is even the chosen language for the AP Computer Science A Exam. Our step-by-step curriculum makes the principles behind code easily accessible even to those with no prior programming experience. This course provides an excellent launching point into the world of computer programming. Not only is Java™ one of the most advanced and powerful programming languages, but mastering Java™ provides a perfect foundation for learning additional programming languages such as C++ or Objective C (the language used in developing apps for Apple's® mobile devices, like the iPhone®, iPad® and Mac® computers). Please see schedule below for more details.

Small class sizes
We guarantee small class sizes. Why? Because our teaching philosophy is premised on personalization and individual attention ? your path, at your pace. HoneZone's experienced and skilled instructors guide students through customized curriculum with 1-on-1 teaching. The immersive environment is ideal for fostering creativity and learning.

Our Personalized Instruction Promise
Our innovative curriculum is premised on a blended learning strategy. Students receive blended (or hybrid) instruction with live 1-on-1 instruction from our team of educators. Small class sizes allow students to move along at an appropriate, customized pace. Students spend an hour every week in session, but there is also plenty of opportunities to continue creating technology at their own leisure to give students a fun, well-balanced learning experience.

My son/daughter is not interested in computers as a career. How is this program useful for my student?
Technology is pervasive in almost every aspect of daily life, and as the workplace changes, STEM knowledge and skills grow in importance for a variety of workers beyond STEM careers. Studies have found that demand for STEM-capable workers have increased in traditionally non-STEM fields due to diffusion of technology across industries and occupations. Improving access to quality STEM education will strengthen the caliber of the student even if they want to pursue a non-STEM career. STEM knowledge extends beyond a career, it is a knowlege for life.

My son/daughter work their iPhone, iPad with ease, don't they already know Technology?
While students work their iPhone, iPad, iPod and Games apps easily, the key to their success is to understand the inner workings of the technology involved in creating those apps and games. At HoneZone, they will learn to "create" those games and apps, rather than just "use" them. It is the practical application of those ideas and the creative thinking required to solve real-world problems, that forms the basis of a truly engaging learning experience.

What is STEM?
The acronym STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics.

According to the U.S. Bureau of Statistics, in the next five years, STEM jobs are projected to grow twice as quickly as jobs in other fields. While all jobs are expected to grow by 10.4%, STEM jobs are expected to increase by 21.4%. Similarly, 80% of jobs in the next decade will require technical skills. We need to prepare our students to be able to compete in a knowledge-based global economy. Students need 21st Century skills of adaptability, complex communication, social skills, non-routine problem solving, self-management, self-development, and systems thinking. Our students will be called upon to be innovative and creative problem solvers, designers, developers, and inventors.

Why STEM early?
Consider this statistics from Nation center for education statistics: Of the 3.8 million 9th graders in the US, only 233,000 end up choosing a STEM degree in college (National Center for Education Statistics). That means only six STEM graduates out of every 100 9th graders. While all jobs are expected to grow by 10.4%, STEM jobs are expected to increase by 21.4%. Similarly, 80% of jobs in the next decade will require technology skills. Technology is pervasive in almost every aspect of daily life, and as the workplace changes, STEM knowledge and skills grow in importance for a variety of workers (including non-STEM careers).
