Intermediate Scratch: Coding a Space Adventure w/ Pete and Trevor (Grades 2+)

in: Virtual on: Friday
meets: 3/5, 3/12, 3/19, 3/26, 4/2, 4/9, 4/16, 4/30
time: 4:00-5:00

When arcade games were at their peak, outer-space adventures like Asteroids, Space Invaders, and Galaga were incredibly popular. Titles like these still inspire game creators to this day. In this workshop, students will build a space adventure game in Scratch that takes inspiration from these legendary games. They’ll code movement, projectiles, collisions, and much more while learning new coding concepts with the MIT-developed Scratch platform.

To participate in class, students will need to make a free account on the coding website Scratch (scratch.mit.edu). We strongly encourage students to set up an account before the first day of class.

NOTE: This workshop is intended for students who already have some experience with the Scratch language and interface.

This class is designed for students in grades 2 and up.
