Learning to Code Games
In this course students are taught logical thinking using a simple graphical language – Scratch (developed by MIT). Scratch helps young minds learn to think creatively, reason systematically and work collaboratively. With this course, participants will be able to create and program their own interactive stories, creative animations and also wonderful games. This platform serves as an initial step towards the vast world of programming!
Scratch is a block-based visual programming language and it is not exclusively for creating games. With the provided visuals, programmers can create animations, texts, stories, music and much more. Scratch lets young people easily understand programming logic using interactive elements.
