Beginning Computer Programming
Create animated stories using the introductory programming language ScratchJr (a learning tool developed at MIT). ScratchJr is a real computer language that is block-based and visual: kids snap together blocks like they are building with digital Legos. Learn how to drag blocks of commands across an iPad screen into sequences that makes your story characters move and interact. Come think creatively, work collaboratively, and have a great time! iPads are provided for this camp.
