Students will be introduced to fundamental programming concepts using Scratch, a visual programming language developed at MIT. Students will create their own games, animations, and various interactive projects using block-like puzzle pieces containing code that they can then upload and share with the MIT Scratch community. Computational concepts such as sequences, loops, conditionals, variables, operators, x/y axis, testing and debugging are covered. No previous programming experience necessary.

Children will be able to continue programming with Python in January.

    We will be out of town for the first class. Is there any way to schedule a tutoring session (paid, of course) and then continue in the class? My daughter really wants to learn Scratch, but I am concerned about her missing the first class. Thanks so much!
