Scratch Programming (New for 2018!)


Programming with Scratch offers students of all ages a fun and meaningful introduction to programming. Students learn to program games and activities by snapping together code blocks instead of writing many lines of code. Scratch's puzzle-like design prevents young coders from getting frustrated with errors related to abstract concepts such as programming syntax and semantics.Using Scratch will allows the students to learn programming in a hands-on environment in order to gain the knowledge and skills needed to succeed in learning traditional programming languages such as Python, Java, C++ and many others. In class students will learn basic programming logic, improve math skills and create games and activities using Scratch.

No Prerequisites Required

Students are encouraged to bring a pen/pencil as well as a notebook to the program
