Coding 4 Kids with Scratch

Grades 2-4

Are you ready to start playing with code? We will be using a variety of software development techniques to introduce drag and drop tools designed to teach programming using MIT’s Scratch coding platform. This program will feature fun coding activities where we program games, animations, and make our own music. Our instructors will share the basics of software development in an entertaining and sophisticated, yet easy to learn environment. Participants should be comfortable using keyboards or touchscreen to read and follow instructions.
