class description

Programming is more than learning to write code. It’s learning to identify objectives, decompose problems, and working with others to design a solution. It’s a powerful tool for creating solutions in almost every field from space, gaming, medical research to art.

In this class, we’ll learn fundamental programming concepts and how to apply them to build our own games and animations in Scratch. Scratch was designed to be quick and easy to use with ready-made blocks of code. The goal is to inspire a love for problem solving and creating with technology.
