This will be a 16-week course and consists of our beginner, intermediate and advanced courses (these are available as 5-week classes). Scratch is a drag-and-drop language that allows students to easily create games. It is a good way to start learning about programming concepts before progressing to other languages which require users to learn the syntax.
Each week students learn to program a different game. They start with simple games but progress to games like Hangman, Flappy Bird imitations, and platform games.
