In this class learners will build a chatbot from the ground up. Chatbots have become popular over the last few years.

"Snap!" is a further development of the Scratch programming language by University of California at Berkeley. It is designed for kids (and adults) and uses the same privacy policies (COPPA compliant) as Scratch. Account creation is OPTIONAL. However, creating an account allows learners to save their projects to the cloud. Without an account, learners can only save their project to their computers. Account creation uses the exact same process as Scratch. Learners will be asked for username, birthday and email. No information is shared outside of Snap. Birthday and email is never shared within Snap. Username is only shared if learners share their projects with the coding community.
