Science World Online Winter Break: Scratch Holiday Card

In this workshop, learners will be introduced to the basics of Scratch as they work to create an interactive greeting card.

About this Event

In this workshop we will start with a discussion around what coding is and why it’s an important skill to learn. We will then do a brief introduction to the Scratch website and review all of the features before we begin coding. Following an I do – We do – You do model, we will work towards building an interactive greeting card that will use motion, looks, sound, backgrounds, and events. Learners will leave the workshop with a solid foundation of Scratch coding skills so that they can continue to experiment with their own ideas!

Recommended for ages 8 - 14
