Grades 3-5 Video Game Programming Registration Opens on: Jan 23, 2012
Does your kid dream of writing his or her own video games? We’ve found a great way to get started: Scratch, the super-simple drag-and-drop multimedia programming language designed by MIT‘s Lifelong Kindergarten project.
This class requires solid reading and math and the ability to focus for an hour, except for a short break. Scroll down for review.
We’ll be starting with simple projects and working up from there.
NOTE: Scratch is available to anyone for free on the Internet. Learn it at home! Or, sign up for one of our classes so one of Adventures with Robots’ trained instructors can lead you through a lesson plan, where you’ll learn how to make characters walk, talk and boogie across the screen.
