THIS WORKSHOP, OFFERED VIRTUALLY, WILL INTRODUCE STUDENTS TO THE BASICS OF SCRATCH AS THEY WORK TO CREATE AN INTERACTIVE GREETING CARD.
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. Students will leave the workshop with a solid foundation of Scratch coding skills so that they can continue to experiment with their own ideas!
