Scratch is a programming language and an online community where children can program and share interactive media such as stories, games, and animation with people from all over the world. As children create with Scratch, they learn to think creatively, work collaboratively, and reason systematically. Scratch is designed and maintained by the Lifelong Kindergarten group at the MIT Media Lab.
All our instructors are local BC Engineers with the know-how and the passion for engineering.
Age Groups
Typically 7-12 year old kids will enjoy the workshops the most, but we welcome all age groups who are willing to take on the challenge!
Typical Class
We meet live online on Zoom or similar conferencing app. Each 60-minute workshop includes demos, debug challenges and weekly assignments to keep kids engaged and learning. Kids are introduced to new concepts/tools every workshop and they are provided support as they imagine and give shape to their own ideas using Scratch.
Requirements
You will need a PC/Mac with a browser to run the Scratch Program and a stable internet connection. You can sign up for a FREE Scratch account at scratch.mit.edu
