This class teaches computer programming using MIT’s Scratch 2.0 system to children in fourth grade and up. The course material is divided into various themes including Drawing & Animation, Game Design and Problem Solving. Students utilize math concepts such as equations and logical reasoning combined with scientific principles such as gravity and collisions to explore the world of coding.
The class is capped-off with a multi-week effort where each child builds their own final project to present to the group and publishes it on MIT’s website for the community to view, comment and download! Multiple layers of challenging material are available allowing students to repeat this workshop until proficiency is achieved and they are ready for the next challenge (see Coding With Python and/or Coding Phone Apps). No previous coding experience is required.
