In this advanced Scratch coding day camp, students ten or above extend their knowledge and skills of coding with the block-based visual programming language, Scratch. Campers will broaden their understanding of conditionals, loops and variables by learning about Scratch’s virtual pen and reusing code through procedures. As a result, students will create at least three fun, creative and engaging projects: Bouncing Lines, Doodle Pad and Polygon Playpen.
At the end of camp students will have received over five hours of instruction on computer science vocabulary and principles as well as hands-on projects. As an unplugged activity, students will learn to use protractors and apply simple math to draw polygons.
Your $45 registration includes all instruction, use of computers and accessories, materials, snacks and camp souvenirs. Lunch is NOT provided so please plan accordingly by sending a sack lunch with your camper. The Eastview Community Center has a refrigerator for keeping food and drinks cold.
