“[Programming is] logic-based creativity.” -John Romero, video game director, designer, programmer, and developer
Have you ever wondered how your favorite video or computer game works? The answer is coding! This week, campers build their coding knowledge by learning the basics of block-based coding, an entry-level activity that teaches kids the basics of computational thinking.
Learn to code your very own games!
Using the online platform Scratch, kids will learn all there is to know about Sprites, how to code things like character movement, time-keeping mechanics, and other conditions for winning or losing a game. Campers will walk away from this week knowing how to create single and mutli-player games as well as practice their problem-solving skills.
Equipment required: Scratch can be used on a laptop computer or Chromebook.
