Once your child has learned how to navigate it’s interface and make simple projects, it’s time to go deeper.

Using Scratch, a visual drag-and-drop programming language developed at MIT, students design their own world and then bring it to life. As they animate characters and develop games, students learn the fundamentals of programming, including conditional statements, variables and event handling. Instructors provide personalized help to engage any learning style so students’ progress at their own pace as they experiment with fun new challenges. No experience is required but students should come to class with an open mind and a willingness to participate fully!
