2 Summer Game coding classes at Orange Coast college

Write Computer games This Summer @ Orange Coast College

scratch_game

TechsCool is offering an after-school S.T.E.M. (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) program that will introduce youngsters, to creative computing with Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) Scratch programming tool, using a design-based learning approach.

This S.T.E.M program provides an introduction to creative computing with MIT’s Scratch programming tool, using a design-based learning approach. Creative computing is about tapping into your child’s creativity and allows your child to convert from a consumer of technology to a producer. Students will be able to “read” as well as ‘write in this digital age. Engaging in the creation of computer games prepares youth for more than careers as computer scientists or as programmers. It supports young people’s development as computational thinkers – individuals who can draw on computational concepts, practices, and perspectives in all aspects of their lives, across disciplines and contexts. Seating is limited, enroll early.
