Scratch® Coding

Once you have the basics down, it’s time to take your Scratch® Coding skills to the next level!  This class on Intermediate Scratch® Coding introduces advanced concepts in how to used Scratch® with Robotics, Motor Control, and MicroBit® as well as introduces other, more complex block-based coding systems like MakeCode® and Snap®.  Each system has its advantages and disadvantages and understanding these is key to using the right coding system to designing and creating the software you want for your project.
Scratch® is recommended for Ages 8 and up.  Intermediate Scratch® builds off of our Beginner Scratch® program to push the capabilities of how the Scratch® Coding system can be used.  Students should have completed Beginner Scratch® and feel comfortable with the program prior to beginning this class.  Previous experience with Beginner Robotics is also recommended.
