Grades 2nd To 4th
This hands-on class teaches computer programming to second to fourth graders using MIT’s Scratch system. Launch’s budding computer scientists explore themes ranging from Drawing & Animation and Storytelling, to Problem Solving and Game Design. With creativity always at the forefront of each class, students learn systematic coding concepts such as timing, event handling and sequencing to make (and play!) various games and animations. Multiple layers of challenging material are available allowing students to repeat this class until proficiency is achieved and they are ready for the next challenge.
No previous coding experience is required, however your child must be comfortable working independently on a computer.
