Scratch iconIn this advanced Scratch coding camp, students nine or above extend their knowledge and skills of coding with the block-based visual programming language, Scratch. This camp is intended for students who have previously created programs in Scratch and understand coding basics such as conditionals, events, loops and variables. In each session of this camp, students deepen their knowledge of computer science basics with focus given to analysis, logic and interfaces while learning about lists, parameters, procedures, operators, string manipulation and more. Students will be introduced to augmented and virtual reality, creating Scratch projects that incorporate live video and hand gestures. They will also see how mathematics can bring coding to life! Each session of camp includes overview of computer science vocabulary and principles, unplugged activities and the following hands-on projects:

  • Guessing Game
  • Math Facts
  • Mad Libs
  • Musical Notes
  • Doodle Pad
  • Bouncing Lines
  • Polygon PlayPen
