    Course information

    This course is for children who want to get into programming and learn how to make their own games.

    Every lesson students will be making new games such as: fruit ninja, ping pong, guitar hero, and many others.

    Scratch is the most popular programming language for kids with more than 50 million projects.

    Scratch is a block-based coding language which means that programs are created by moving and connecting blocks like a “puzzle”, adding them to a programm.

    Despite its visual simplicity, scratch teaches kids tools that professionals use:

    • variables
    • cycles
    • conditions
    • function

    We also interact with webcam, make sound effects and use pen tools for making games.

    Note. We use Scratch version 3 in this course.
