Students will learn about the key ingredients of a story while exploring the many possibilities of Scratch 3.0, a programming language for kids created by MIT.

 


Creative Coding Group Class

Grades 3 to 6

This program was designed for students who want to explore coding and through imaginative storytelling! Students design characters and plan narratives, then animate them by assembling “blocks” to give instructions to the computer. By the end of the class, each student will have created a short animated movie to share with friends and family.

In this ten-hour program, students will:

 Explore the basics of Scratch 3: the interface, blocks, sprites, and backgrounds
 Explore the basics of storytelling: characters, settings, plot, and dialogue
 Develop problem-solving and critical thinking skills while completing a creative project
 Collaborate with their classmates and engage in active learning activities
