Description

Make a computer game in Scratch! – CoderDojoHamilton & IEC of Hamilton

This is a beginner to middle level workshop for local Hamilton students in Grades 4-8.

Whether you are new to the world of ‘code’ or you want to ‘level-up’ your coding skills, this is your chance to create your own video game! Note: this workshop provides a pizza partyand computers.

All workshop attendees require a FREE Scratch account in order to participate.

A parent/guardian must pick up their child at 12:30 pm.

This workshop experience offers local Hamilton students the opportunity to learn how to use their creativity and problem-solving skills to create a video game! The workshop will focus on the use of Scratch, an easy-to-use online platform where participants will learn the basics of software programming through recipe-style drag and drop technology. They will have the opportunity to explore various templates and add text, links, images and audio as they customize their very own video game! After the session, they will be able to continue to explore to develop their coding skills and even show you their masterpiece

DIVERSITY & INCLUSIVENESS

We welcome and advocate for the presence and contributions of all people regardless of their gender, gender identity, gender expression, sexual orientation, age, culture, abilities, ethnic origin, marital status, nationality, race, religion, education, or socioeconomic status.

Prejudice, oppression, and discrimination are detrimental to the growth of a rich and vibrant community. CoderDojoHamilton is filled with diverse participants, and supporting the visibility of such diversity enhances the experiences of all community members. As such, we value inclusiveness and vigorously defend CoderDojoHamilton as a safe space for all participants.

We insist that everyone who uses the space—member or guest—remains mindful of, and takes responsibility for, their speech and behavior.

If you think of something that is missing from this statement, or a way we could improve it, please send us an email at hamilton@coderdojo.ca. If you experience marginalizing or silencing behavior which limits your full participation in any CoderDojo event, please talk to a volunteer in confidence (in person or via email).
