Scratch SuperCoders Bootcamp for kids aged 7 – 10 years, Nariman Point, Jan 30-31 and Feb 6-7

The purpose of the bootcamp is to encourage computational thinking among children using a programming language called Scratch. Scratch is designed especially to encourage logical thinking and reasoning among children, and has been created by the MIT Media Lab. See more at scratch.mit.edu.

Scratch is a programming language to create interactive stories, games, and animations. Designing and programming Scratch projects helps children learn to think creatively, reason systematically, and work collaboratively.

HOW SCRATCH WORKS

Scratch programs are built by snapping together graphical blocks, each representing a programming event or command. By connecting the blocks together like a jigsaw puzzle, children can create programs to make characters move, jump, dance, and sing. Scratch has been developed especially for children by the MIT Media Lab.

TRY SCRATCH AT THE BOOTCAMP!

The Scratch bootcamp is a great way to try Scratch and see if you like it, all in a single weekend. The bootcamp runs on Friday evening and Saturday morning (2 hours each) and teaches children the basics of programming Scratch through two starter projects.
