Many people do their first programming in "Scratch", MIT's drag-and-drop language, which makes code accessible by replacing typed commands with simple snap-together logic blocks. But most real world programming languages are not so simple. Software developers use typed languages such as Java to create their Apps and games.

Over the course of 6 sessions, learn the basics of Java programming with Processing, a beginner's language designed for interactive graphics. With the Eli Whitney Museum's own "Scratching" extension, you can use familiar Scratch commands in Processing to create even better games than with Scratch or Processing alone. Start by "cloning" the classic Space Invaders. Then develop your own masterwork.
