Intro to Programming
Students learn to create their version of the digital world around them. They will be able to express their creativity, problem solve and collaborate as they learn this new language. Students will use Scratch, a free programming language and online community where you can create your own interactive stories, games, and animations.
During this eight week course students will gain an introduction to the world of coding, basic movements, games and animation, ultimately building their own project.
