December 2 – 16
Scratch is the best environment for getting young programmers’ feet wet with coding concepts. The block-based, drag-and-drop interface is intuitive to first-time users, and familiar to students who have tried their hand at code.org and other “Coding 101” web sites. Besides including essentials like loops and conditionals, it lets you define your own dynamically typed variables, create functions, pull in external libraries, and much more. That may all sound nerdy, but the important thing is you can do “real” programming with it. The focus of this course will be on building simple games and quizzes.
This class will meet on Dec. 2, 9, and 16.
