Scratch Programming

In this step-by-step workshop we’ll help you learn enough vector drawing and coding to design and program your own interactive character. With a few colorful blocks of code and a little creativity you’ll be able to design your own character, animate it, and program it to talk, move around, and even have a conversation! At the end we’ll have a chance to share our work, and even get our characters to “meet” in a shared project!

Using Scratch, you can program your own interactive stories, games, and animations — and share your creations with others in the incredible worldwide Scratch online community.

All levels of scratch experience are welcome to attend. We will have instruction with paper tutorials, offer additional challenges, and provide general support for those who want to explore Scratch on their own. There will also be opportunities to share ideas and techniques with other coders.

The event is ideal for people aged 7 to 127. Space is limited for this workshop. Please register here.
