Examples of programming in Scratch

These weekly afterschool classes will be 2 hours long and will progress over the 6 weeks. Small group classes will accommodate students with any level of experience with Scratch. Beginner level students will get step-by-step instruction while more advanced students can work through lessons at their own pace with check-ins from the instructors. With four different topics and tons of projects to work on, students can choose to learn about the parts of computer programming which interest them the most!

Since the class is right after school, we will have a nut-free snack for everyone one hour into the class. We have a place to keep snacks if students need/want to bring their own. Please no nuts in any snacks brought from home!
