Game Design with Scratch (Ages 8 - 12)

  • MODA 1315 Peachtree Street NE Atlanta, GA 30309 US (map)

Learn how to design a game at MODA using Scratch, a blockly-based visual programming language that teaches students the basics of computer coding!

Scratch enables young designers to learn how to code using drag and drop blocks to form commands that make up the language that programs games. Young designers will learn how to use the scratch command to create various lines of code with different variables to collaboratively design and create a functional mini-game!

Some of the things students will learn:

  • How computer coding works
  • Blockly-based visual programming language
  • How to use Scratch to create a functional game
