School Holiday Code101

Learn the fundamentals of computer programming using Scratch in this fun, engaging holiday activity:

With Scratch, you can program your own interactive stories, games, and animations — and share your creations with others in the online community.

Scratch helps young people learn to think creatively, reason systematically, and work collaboratively — essential skills for life in the 21st century. This fun and engaging course will teach your child the fundamentals of computer programming by using blocks instead of typed codes creating simple computer games and animations.

So what is Scratch?

Scratch is a visual coding language that has been developed by M.I.T as a easy to learn and use coding language. The way you “code” in Scratch is by using pre-written blocks of code, and dragging and dropping them onto the stage Scratch works by assigning “scripts” to “sprites”, which makes them perform certain actions.
