Experience Level: Beginner
Recommended Ages: 7-12 (younger children are ok with help from an adult)
Description: Time to break out your ghost bustin' skills with our Halloween themed game in Scratch. We'll learn a little bit about about the benefits of random numbers to our games, and how to create special visual effects in Scratch.
No prior Scratch experience is required for this course, however if you've worked in Scratch before you will probably still learn something new.
This class is recommended for both children who have never used Scratch before, and those who wish to learn about programming through a visual drag and drop style programming language that doesn't require a lot of typing.

You are encouraged to create a Scratch account for your child on the Scratch website before the class so they can save their projects and continue to play with and work on it at home. Registration is free, and privacy is maintained: http://scratch.mit.edu/
