Students learn computer science fundamentals using MIT’s award winning Scratch language. Students focus on loops, conditional statements, user input, X-Y coordinates, variables, blocks, arithmetic operators etc.
Students will build lots of fun games in Scratch.
For 7-12 years olds.
Class to gain great experience with computer science using Scratch, a program designed by the MIT Media Lab, to code, create, and share projects. Scratch uses a custom programming language that is easy to understand. By moving and combining blocks of code, students develop their own super cool animation projects. Students can also make their animations interactive by including instructions, designing their character’s costumes, adding unique background images and sounds, and programming characters to dance, sing, talk, and more!
