  • “Became proficient in Java programming and computer science topics and knew nothing before. Would recommend!”

    Zachary Waxman

  • “This was an amazing camp. I learned so much and i had a great time. It was specific to each person and the teacher would focus on us individually. Also, it really helped me with my school because I’m in engineering and therefore it gave me something most of my friends don’t know how to do. I really enjoyed it and had a great time and would do it again! I would recommend doing this if your into coding and want to gain more skills with Java.”

Why attend a NextGen Coding Camp in NJ this summer?

The summer months are a crucial time for high school students to explore their interests and increase their marketable skills. Colleges and employers are always looking for students to go "above and beyond" their normal high school responsibilities and to show initiative in gaining valuable experience in their topics of intrest. Unfortunately, students are asked to spend the majority of their time during the school year completing assignments and projects within their school's core subject areas, leaving little time to learn and practice specialized topics and skills. That's why the summer is such an incredible opportunity for kids! Students can spend their summer learning in a fun, stress-free environment at NextGen's coding camps. 

NextGen gives students the perfect place to explore their passion for technology in a safe, academic, and highly personalized environment. NextGen teaches many different coding languages, opening the door for students with a wide array of interests to sample a variety of tech roles before finding the perfect fit. Additionally, all of our curriclua are activity-based and hands-on so that students can learn concepts quickly and become familiar with complex concepts in a short period of time! Here are some more reasons to take our code camps this summer:

Improve Your Brain-Power

Studies show that learning a new language, including computer programming languages, has remarkable cognitive benefits, including increases in processing power, working memory, and attention span. Additionally, programmers' brains are said to work twice has hard as other writers beacuse writing in code activates both the region of the brain that handles language processing and the region of the brain that handles mathematical reasoning. Finally, according to the National Institute of Health, learning new coding principles helps to form new neural connections and strengthens existing connections related to logic, problem-solving, and reasoning. 

Highly Effective Immersive Learning

Although students spend their school year sitting in classrooms for several hours a day, they've never learned in a classroom quite like this. Our immersive curriculum has students actively working on coding projects all day, starting on day one. Think of this pedagogical method as similar to moving to another country to learn a second language: the complete immersion enables students to learn on a deep, conceptual level more quickly than would ever be possible in a lecture-style classroom. 

Stand Out as a College Applicant

With college acceptance becoming more competitive every year, high school students need to demonstrate their enthusiasm for learning and their commitment to pursuing academic excellence. By completing NextGen's program, students show colleges that they are aware of the current demands of the job skills market and that they are serious about taking on rigorous learning opportunities to excel in high school, college, and beyond. Beyond looking great to college admissions boards, students in our courses learn skills that enable them to get ahead in high school math and computer science, test out of college courses, and spend more time preparing for whatever they wish to do in the real world.
