This class uses an intuitive child friendly software called SCRATCH to introduce your child to the world of coding. We cover the basics of coding and progress towards more advanced features in SCRATCH coding with the following courses
Game Design with SCRATCH:
Calling all game lovers out there. It’s fun to play video games, it’s even more fun to design your own game! In this class you won’t just learn to program the games, you will also have fun playing them. Students will not only learn the characteristics of a good game like speed, obstacles, scoring, visual appeal and sound effects, they will also learn the basics of coding like variables, if then statements, logic, loops etc. To add to this students will learn to create cool characters (sprites) for their game and will also learn to build the backdrop for the games they create.
Create animations with SCRATCH:
In this class students will learn coding by doing fun animation projects. As students learn the ins and outs of the intuitive drag-and-drop interface, they’ll create an animated birthday card, a fireworks show, and work on creating their own stories including a choose-your-own-adventure! This class will be covering cloning, variables, timing, and even how to create custom sprites and backdrops.
