Building a Video Game: Intro to Basic Programming Skills

Class
Play
In this one-time class, students will learn basic programming logic and build a simple video game using Scratch.

Class experience

The goal of this class is to provide the building blocks for beginning to actually write code. Students will learn the basic tools required to make anything they desire in Scratch. As long as they are willing to dedicate the time and effort, they will be able to do a lot more than you might expect. I recommend this course as an intro to my more involved courses, where we will actually be writing our own code with JavaScript.
Note pads can be helpful for taking notes or drawing pictures, but are not required. It is recommended that you have access to a keyboard and a mouse. 
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
Scratch is a very kid-friendly program, and while I don't like to limit creativity in my class, I will ensure that student creations are age-appropriate. 
Scratch is a website the students will use. If you would like to make an account before class, you are more than welcome to. If you create an account you can permanently save your game!
