Scratch Programming
Scratch is an introductory programming language developed at MIT. It is a visual programming language. The programming is done by moving and attaching blocks rather than by writing code. Scratch enables kids to quickly program graphics, animations, and games without getting bogged down by the complexities of modern programming languages. This course introduces Scratch programming by first walking you through creating your own account, writing simple programs, and then building your way up to creating your own drawings. Students can make their sprites move in interesting ways across a chosen backdrop. Students will finish the course by completing two challenging and fun projects.

What you need to know

Absolutely no prior programming experience required! Students are expected to only know how to use a computer, e.g., to click, to type, to use a mouse, and to follow along our videos.

What you will learn

After completing this course, you would have mastered:
  • Elements of a Scratch program
  • Changing sprites and backdrops
  • Moving your sprite around the screen
  • Creating simple action sequences
  • The (x,y) coordinate system
  • Angles and rotation
  • Drawing pictures using pen commands
  • Stamping
  • Loops of repetitive commands

System Requirements

We will be using Scratch Version 2.0 which is free and runs on a browser, so no separate installation is required. You will need:
  1. A desktop computer or laptop running Windows. Mac, or Linux (an iPad will not work)
  1. A web browser: Google Chrome (Version 35 or later), Microsoft Internet Explorer (Version 9 or later), or Mozilla Firefox (Version 31 or later). Make sure in your browser’s security preferences, you allow Adobe Flash Player to work when visiting the Scratch website.
