Students use block code to build an interplanetary story and game. Multi-themed projects include elements of storytelling, art, animation, music, and game design all in one. Projects emphasize creativity by encouraging students to build their unique stories each day.

Flex your creative thinking skills as you design custom projects in Scratch. Scratch is a programming language and an online community where children can program and share interactive media such as stories, games, and animation. Playfully build a foundation in computer science (coding) as you imagine, create and share.

Intermediate Level: course is suitable for students familiar with block coding.

Recommended prerequisite: My First Intro to Coding! or previous course

Learning Outcomes

  • Learn to connect online, screen share, use chat to communicate with Coach and fellow students (on-line collaboration via Zoom)
  • Learn fundamentals of computer science(CS) using Scratch

  • Mars Pioneer¬†Theme based on NASA’s Perseverance Launch, Landing and Exploration: 5 Activities
    • Class 1: Design Your Journey: Tell your story. Who’s going, create/draw your ship, prepare Perseverance for launch.
    • Class 2: Launch & Transit: Animating departure from Earth and through space. Is there an imposter on board?!
    • Class 3: Land & Explore: create a game to land on target. Explore and decide what (or who) you’ll find.
    • Class 4: Launch the drone, Ingenuity, and create your scrolling background effect as it flies.
