Game Programming with Scratch
Scratch is an amazing way to introduce kids tocomputer programming. This tile-based, visual programming class will provide kids with an introduction to the logic and syntax of programming through creating their own unique animated stories, interactive art and games that they will be able to share! Additionally, because Scratch is free to download, kids can practice at home in their spare time!
Mondays, 4:00PM – 5:30PM: 01/13 – 03/17
Wednesdays, 4:00PM – 5:30PM: 01/15 – 03/12

Computer Programming with Processing
Processing is a visual, object-oriented computer programming language. This class will provide a solid foundation for understanding the logic and basics behind computer programming, challenging students to combine the forces of code with visual art by creating stunning shapes, colors, animations, mouse interactions and more!

In this class, students will learn how to create 3D animations and renders from Minecraft! Students will export their characters or environments and import them into Blender – an open sourced 3D Animation program. From there, they will learn how to use Blender’s powerful editing tools to create unique textures, colors, poses and more! This class will provide a foundation on how to use Blender for 3D Animation and modeling – and by the final class, feel comfortable taking their skills to a more advanced level!
