Scratch 102: Drawing with Scratch 3.0
Scratch, the visual programming language developed at MIT, enables kids to quickly program graphics, animations, and games without getting bogged down by the complexities of modern programming languages. This course is the second in our sequence on Scratch programming and introduces how to use Scratch to draw shapes, messages, and more! Drawing in Scratch is modeled after the idea of turtle graphics (originally from the Logo programming language) where we use a sprite to move a pen in specific ways across a canvas. This course also gently introduces programming concepts such as loops. Learn about setting the pen feature on/off, stamping sprite images, and more!
What you need to know
Students are expected to have completed Scratch Coding 101 which introduces the Scratch workspace and basic movement blocks.
