Scratch, the introductory programming language developed at MIT, is ideal for learning to create your own animations! In Scratch, animations are created by making your sprites change costumes in slow succession. Because programming in Scratch is visual, it is easy to compose just a few blocks to create compelling animations! You can use the numerous in-built sprites (people, animals, birds) to create your animations or you can create your own characters. This course teaches you how! It walks you through the basics of animation through costumes. This course is also the foundation to more advanced animation courses.
