Grades 5th To 7th
Calling all coders! Join the Launch team – virtually – to go behind the scenes and take part in the multi-step process of game development using Scratch 3.0. Variables, conditional statements, coordinate axes, and other logic and mathematical concepts are the tools that our budding programmers use to develop their games. Along the way students define their games’ mechanics, explore the artistic side of game creation, consider player engagement, and plan out various levels and point systems. All in preparation for the final release day!
No previous coding experience is required. Students must have a computer in order to code (not a tablet). It is highly recommended but not required that students use one computer to code and another device (tablet, computer) to participate in the Zoom class at the same time.
