In this summer course students will learn how to create video games using scratch programming language. Along with creating video games, students will create and program a robot with Lego EV3. We will also spend part of each day playing games such as chess and scrabble!
Scratch is a programming language designed and maintained by MIT Lab. Kids program their own interactive stories, games, and animations with scratch. Scratch helps young people learn to think creatively, reason systematically, and work collaboratively — essential skills for life in the 21st century.
