Scratch Coding Classes

At YouthCode Scratch Coding Classes, students age nine or above learn basic computer science principles and skills while programming computers with CS First and Scratch. All of our instructor-led Scratch classes use the block-based programming language Scratch. Each class consists of eight sessions with unplugged activities to learn basic computer science concepts and hands-on computer time where students create individual projects based on the theme of Art, Music & Sound, Game Design or Sports.
