Description

Learning JavaScript® using MakeCode®

Has your child become proficient with Scratch?  Do they still Coding but want to become challenged again with more complex options and and greater capabilities?  

Microsoft® MakeCode® is a great next step.  MakeCode utilizes a graphical Coding format similar to Scratch; but one that includes much more complex Coding elements.  We use these elements to create Arcade-quality games, Simulations, and interface with offline components like Circuits, Sensors, Robotics, and more.  Finally, MakeCode programming blocks map directly to actual lines of code in the JavaScript text-based programming language, making transitioning to JavaScript seamless and much easier.  MakeCode provides a fun way build off of Scratch and gain success with JavaScript, one of the world's most prevalent programming languages!
