Scratch the Surface of Coding

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Do you have to be a genius to learn code? No way! You just have to be determined! Come learn all there is to know about Scratch, the free visual coding language that everyone can learn. You will be taught all the basics and leave with ready to go coding projects you can create with your students. Coding teaches important strategies for problem-solving, designing projects, communicating ideas, and most important -- it's fun!
We will be giving away one copy of the book Coding Games in Scratch: A Step-by-Step Visual Guide to Building Your Own Computer Games published by DK
