Scratch is a graphical programming language, developed by the Lifelong Kindergarten group at MIT. Students will drag and combine code blocks to make a range of programs, including animations, stories, musical instruments and games. It’s a bit like the programming equivalent of LEGO! Each week students will work on a project idea, gradually unlocking all they will need to know to create their own projects using all of Scratch’s features. Each semester will include different lessons and projects.
*Students will need to bring a laptop with Windows 10 or later or macOS 10.13 or later and approximately 400 MB of free hard drive space
