SCRATCH 2.0: CODING & GAME DESIGN
Students will design their own video-games using Scratch, a software developed by MIT media lab. They will learn how to think like programmers, use logic, and piece together different codes to make their characters move, jump, and interact with their environments. They will combine the logical skills they learn for programming with their creativity and unleash their imagination by inventing their own characters and backgrounds in a paint editor. As they build and move through such games as our “Adventure”, “Maze” and “Platform” games, they will advance their coding skills and increase the complexity of what they’re working on to more and more realistic games. In this class, students often go from being uncertain about what programming is, to being confident about their ability to come up with their own game and design it in a single class.
