Learn the basics of coding and Scratch by animating your name!

Learners age 9 and above will be introduced to Scratch while learning coding basics in this fun, introductory workshop while animating their name. At the end of this workshop, students will have created a program while learning about sequencing, event listeners, loops and graphics.

  • No experience with Scratch is necessary but experience with a keyboard and mouse is required.
  • A Scratch account is recommended in order to save projects.
  • A parent or guardian is required to complete the registration process and learners under the age of 13 require a parent or guardian to be present during the workshop.

Developed and maintained by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Scratch is a great way for students to learn introductory coding. Not only is Scratch fun, but by using blocks (think digital LEGOs®) instead of text, emphasis is placed on learning coding fundamentals rather than worrying about the syntax of a programming language. Scratch also brings together communities of content creators by allowing Scratchers to share their work, remix and learn from others.
