Scratch Programming Series – Day 2

Scratch is a simple programming language and game design platform that was developed by MIT. It was created to get young students interested in STEM (computer science specifically). It features a drag and drop interface that makes it easy to use. You DO NOT need any programming or computer science experience!

Students in this series will complete game design using Scratch.

Sessions are 1.5 hours; Students should bring laptops (3rd grade and up)
