Whizara’s Scratch programming course offers a fun way for young students to start thinking like a programmer as they explore and develop imaginative stories, animations and games using MIT’s Scratch programming interface. Students learn the block-based programming concepts of motion, looks, sound, events, loops, conditionals, game mechanics, operators and variables.
Student’s get creative with designing, drawing, recording and storyboarding personalized projects using the drag and drop visual programming interface. The course further reinforces computational concepts of sequencing, pattern recognition, parallelism and algorithmic thinking.
