Creative Coding with Scratch
Get creative with MIT Scratch!
This comprehensive course connects the dots between the real world and core coding concepts, so that your kids become well equipped to make meaningful creations with Scratch, a beginner friendly block-based programming language.
MEDIUM OF INSTRUCTION
Must be able to type efficiently
We begin by introducing Scratch to build simple games and animations with your kids, through which they will learn important coding concepts.
- Adopt project-based learning to build core and important coding concepts through active exploration of real life problems.
- Deep dive into game design and development with programming animations by using Scratch.
- Apply logical thinking and creativity to code animation and games.
Scratch Programming for Beginners
Scratch is a block-based programming language created for kids. It uses a drag-and-drop interface, making it easy for kids to master even without programming background. With basic computer programming concepts such as loops, and if-then-else, functions, kids can start building their own animations, stories, and games.
Intermediate Scratch: Extending Into Games
Students will develop mastery of exisitng coding concepts and discover new and more complex ones on the way. We will dive into the art of programming animations with Scratch as a component of game design and development, and learn about the nature of gameplay and game design.
Artificial Intelligence with Scratch
AI is becoming more important in almost all industries nowadays. For example, AI can be used to support diagnostics in the medical field, and the use of robots can replace strenuous tasks by humans in industrial applications. Kids will be exposed to a number of AI applications on Scratch and understand how AI can be applied to real life.
