Event description

Description

Kids learn how to code cool video games - including game structure, graphics, sound, animation and characters - using Scratch, an introductory programming language created by MIT and used by millions of budding programmers worldwide.

Already coded before? Kids create more sophisticated games that included advanced features -- so every child progresses at his/her own pace.

Why Should Kids Code?

  1. CODING IS A SUPER SKILL: Instead of simply playing a video game, kids learn how to create a video game! This helps build their confidence, technical skills, and perseverance (grit) to succeed.
  2. CODING HELPS WITH MATH: Coding uses math skills like logic, patterns, sequences and coordinates -- and it's more engaging than workbooks or tutoring programs.
  3. CODING LEADS TO JOB OPPORTUNITIES: there will be +1M well-paying and unfilled computing jobs by 2020, yet less than 3% of degrees are in computer science.

Who Is This Workshop For?

  • Beginner/Intermediate Level - No prior coding experience required. Basic and Advanced project levels to ensure that all kids progress according to their abilities.
  • Projects specially designed to appeal to both boys and girls.
  • Parents are welcome to relax in the CSI lounge area.
