Curious about code? Want to make programs and games? This course will introduce you to Scratch, an amazing community of coders using a block-based coding language to make projects of all kinds. You’ll be creating with code in no time!
In Learn to Code with Scratch, students will explore the creation and development of the Scratch platform as a block-based programming language and as a community of builders and remixers. Students will work on design-driven projects utilizing animation, music and sound, art, interactivity, and game design as they build skills in programming Scratch and in designing media for a real-world setting. Students will end the course with a ‘studio’ of several Scratch programs, a slew of block-based programming skills that can readily be applied to text-based coding languages, and some experience in design-building.
This is a Digital Media Academy self-paced learning experience, designed to build foundational knowledge and skills through hands-on, project-based activities and interactive online excercises.
