Scratch is a block-based visual programming language created by MIT.
In this class students learn the basics of programming while making a custom adventure game or interactive story. Scratch is perfect for introducing kids to programming because it eliminates the stress of coding by removing the need for typing. Programming is done by connecting blocks of code.
Scratch is great for creating a lot of different kinds of games and interactive stories. All students will learn new skills each day, but they can also decide on any kind of game or interactive story they wish to create for their big project.
An example student adventure game would include:
- Player with 3 custom spells/abilities
