Scratch Programming Online (Grades 3-6)
Circuit Lab will be running this virtual program via Zoom meeting. All students will need to have the zoom app installed on their computer prior to the class to connect to the meeting link. Participants will get the Zoom link prior to the start of the program. Please note that in order to participate in this virtual program, participants will need either a PC or a Mac, Chromebook, iPad, etc. No other materials needed.
Let's write some code! In this class, designed for computer programming beginners, we will use the Scratch programming language to create interactive stories, animations, and even custom computer games. Scratch was developed by MIT, and has a user-friendly interface that is fun and intuitive. Through their projects, participants will also develop logical thinking skills and an understanding of how computers work. No previous programming experience is necessary. At the end of the class participants can keep copies of their programs to take home or continue developing in the online Scratch community.
