The Puppy Project: Algorithms and Objects for Beginning Java Coders PBL Project
The National Puppy Shelter is having a problem.
People are adopting cute puppies, but they don’t know what the dogs will be like when they grow to maturity.
In "The Puppy Project: Algorithms and Objects for Beginning Java Coders" within the Information and Communication Technologies sector, students will create virtual dogs as java objects in order to model real dogs in an effort to help potential adopters learn about the various breeds.
Java is a fundamentally object oriented programming language. It is both simple to start coding in as well as useful for creating applications. Java is often the first program language which computer science students learn.
This project is designed for students who are new to programming or who are new to using objects will learn to represent programmatic functionality in terms of the world around them as a simple object oriented application.
The final product? A java program which will simulate a collection of the worlds cutest, most awesome, pet dogs.
