Workshop Information

  • Sundays Jan 11, Jan 18, Jan 25, Feb 1, Feb 8, Feb 15 2015
  • 10:00 am – 11:30 am
  • Designed for ages 9 to 11
  • $180.00 has expanded their "Hour of Code" lessons with new courses. Learn basic coding concepts by using drag-and-drop logic blocks to guide popular characters through a series of challenging puzzles. You will help characters from "Angry Birds", "Plants vs. Zombies," "Flappy Bird" and Disney's "Frozen" to draw pictures, collect flowers, farm fields, and navigate mazes. First timers will begin with the new Course 2, while returning coders will go in to more depth with the more challenging Courses 3 and 4.

Then experiment with MIT's Scratch, a programming language and online community with more flexibility to create your own interactive stories, animations, games, music, and art – and share your creations with others around the world. In the process of designing and programming Scratch projects, young people learn to think creatively, reason systematically, and work collaboratively. Scratch is a project of the Lifelong Kindergarten group at the MIT Media Lab. It is available for free at

You will need an e-mail address (either your own or a parent's) in order to share your work online. Or, you can bring your project home on a USB drive or CD.
