Greenfoot – Introducing Java With Games And Simulations

Kölling, Michael (2011) Greenfoot – Introducing Java With Games And Simulations. In: SIGCSE 2011, March 2011, Dallas, USA.


Greenfoot is a programming environment, developed by the creators of BlueJ, that allows teaching of object-oriented programming concepts – using Java – in a highly motivating context. Built to be interactive and graphical, Greenfoot offers a more engaging experience than previous systems. Building widely differing scenarios, such a simulations or games, is easy and quick. This workshop is aimed at teachers of introductory Java programming courses (high schools and universities) who have no or little experience with Greenfoot. Laptop recommended for hands-on exercises. Participants without laptops will be paired with laptop owners. The workshop is practically oriented and allows participants to use Greenfoot in their classroom immediately. More information at
