Curriculum

Level I

In this class, students will learn how to use Scratch to code their own games and animations. Scratch is a powerful drag-and-drop programming platform for young students.

Students will learn storytelling through game creation. They will also learn coding and math concepts, such as events, loops, variables, and the coordinate system. No prior coding experience needed.

Level II

The intermediate Scratch Coding course teaches students how to create complex, but much more fun, games using the Scratch platform.

Students will learn how to apply math concepts they learn in schools to add more features to their games. This course is recommended only for students who already have the basic Scratch skills as described in Code Galaxy’s first Scratch course.
