Ages 8 – 11
This class is designed for students who have already taken our first Scratch course or have familiarity with creating and animating multiple sprites. We will explore making multi-level games, longer length animations AKA mini movies or explainer videos, learn how to import graphics and sounds.
While creating stories, games, and animations in a child-friendly click-and-drag environment developed at the MIT Media Lab, we will learn programming constructs like loops, subroutines, variables, threads, input and output.
Participants will make a story, game, or animation and share it on the web! Scratch is so much fun, kids will have no idea they are learning how to think logically and learning how to create algorithms. Each Scratch sprite (character) represents a different processing thread. While students are interacting with an easy-to-use click-and-drag program, they’re actually learning about threads, a concept not even covered in AP Computer Sciences classes.
*Please tell us the student’s name and age in the note section at checkout.
