Scratch Junior - Grades K-2 (7 x 45 minute sessions)
Your child might have started playing with your phone at 3 years old, and have become an expert of YouTube and mobile apps at age 5. So why not get started on understanding how computers work with coding? As Apple CEO Tim Cook said, "Coding is the most important second language for everyone to learn".  This series of fun classes use the Scratch Junior platform, developed by the same MIT team that built the Scratch. While building interactive stories and games, your child will be introduced to the basics of coding concepts, solve problems, and most importantly, create!  In this fun Scratch Junior class, we will create a series of animations and games while learning about core coding concepts. For example, your child will learn loops, messaging, how to capture events in a game to take action, and a lot more. We will go from simple projects with different characters working independently, to connecting characters with complex actions. Your child will also get to apply their artistic skills to create their own sprites, tell stories, and share their math and science knowledge.
Prerequisites: No prerequisites
