Getting Started with Scratch:
Scratch is a programming language and an online learning community that enables young people to create stories, games, and animations, and to share their projects with others around the world. Learn the basics of Scratch, create your first project, and share it online with the Scratch community.
This is designed to be a beginners workshop for kids and adults who have had little or no SCRATCH programming experience. SCRATCH is a very easy way to start learning programming and game design. You will come away with enough knowledge to make a game and continue learning on your own.
Bring your own laptop if you can. We will have a few available as well.
