    In this hands-on, four-week program, children ages 8-11 will learn to use the Scratch online programming language to make their own interactive media projects. We will go from consumers to creators of digital entertainment, learning coding concepts and having lots of fun along the way! After learning the basics, we will work together to create a series of round-robin style collaborative digital stories, which will be presented in a screening for family and friends. 


    Note: This class is for children ages 8-11 only. We will be offering a Scratch Jr. program in February for children aged 5-7, with adult accompaniment – click here for more info.


    This class is part of Gizmo’s CS Saturdays Series. Computer Science Saturdays is a unique program for PK through high school students to learn coding, design, robotics and electronics through creative projects and problem solving. Each series is a short (3-4 week) exploration of a CS topic, geared toward a particular age group. 


    Every CS Saturday session is different! If this class doesn’t fit your age group or interests, check out our future class offerings! 


    *Fee waivers are available. Please contact Francesca at francesca@gizmo-cda.org for more information.

    Introducing a coding class just for you and your mini-maker! Children aged 5-7 and their parents/caregivers are invited to join us as we explore computer science through a combination of screen-free games and guided exploration in Scratch Jr, a tablet-based coding platform designed especially for young children. (Pssst… Click here to learn more about Scratch Jr!) Each session is 60 minutes long and features a different project, as well as suggestions and resources for continuing the learning at home.

    If you would like to attend with more than one child, please register each child separately with the same parent/guardian info.
