This class will introduce beginners to coding and animation by working with a block-code based format to understand the fundamentals of coding. Students can develop the skills gained in this class to make more detailed works in animation of a greater scale with complexity of their characters and set pieces. Through learning storyboarding and animation with Scratch, they can author things like interactive “choose your own adventure” books, visual novels, story-based games, or short cartoons!

Hardware: Students will need two devices. One will be used to view the class on Outschool (can be a phone) and the other device will be needed to code. The second device must have a keyboard. Software: Scratch (in browser with account or free desktop download) Students are encouraged to create a Scratch browser account (https://scratch.mit.edu) beforehand or download the desktop version and get comfortable with locating and opening the program to get ready for the first class. It is recommended that students create a folder for saving projects onto their computers or thumbdrives for use as a backup instead of saving projects online. Paper Pencil Eraser
