Computer Summer Camp (Virtual)- Scratch Block Coding

with Simply Coding


Class has begun


Younger kids can code too! This course walks kids through MIT’s scratch coding program giving them experience using all the different tools. They’ll have fun learning about different blocks and how to come together creating a game or animation. By using code blocks they don’t have to worry about brackets and other coding syntax as they learn real computer programming logic. Each lesson focuses on a different skill teaching them different ways computers make decisions, preparing them for future courses. Scratch is used all over the world, it’s a great program for kids to get their first exposure to coding. This course gives them direction and purpose as they explore the world of computer science.

Mon-Fri June 14 -18, 2021 10:00am to 12:00 noon

Each course will have its own needed virtual  ‘workspace’ that will include everything needed to complete the lessons. The software within the workspace is always free and will be installed on the computer. The first lesson of each course walks them through how to setup their workspace. As for hardware. Each computer should have 2GB RAM and at least 10GB of free hard drive space. Students need to use either Mac or Windows computers, no iPads or tablets as they don’t support the needed software to setup your workspace. Chromebooks may be used only for the following courses: Scratch Coding, Coding for N00BS, & JavaScript Game Designs (all JavaScript courses).
