What happens inside a computer program? Students will explore this question using Scratch, the approachable programming software developed by M.I.T.’s Lifelong Kindergarten Group. By clicking and dragging computer science building blocks, students will customize and create algorithms using variables, loops, and iterations. Scratch is a free program that allows anyone to make stories, animations and games using the underlying principles of computer programming languages. This class will spark curiosity about programming and computer science while also exemplifying interconnectedness of math and creativity.
