TechTime Workshop: Create a Ghost-Catching Game in Scratch

October 19 @ 4:30 pm - 6:00 pm

- Free

Get ready for Halloween by creating your own clicker game to catch ghosts! In this fun, hands-on virtual workshop, students ages 10 to 15 will learn the basics of coding using the block-based programming language, Scratch. Students will follow instructions to create the game and learn basic coding concepts of sequencing, repetition, events, randomness and variables. A computer with internet connection is required as students will be receiving instruction via virtual meeting software and coding in Scratch at the same time. Experience with a keyboard and mouse and multitasking in multiple applications and windows is helpful, but not required. No Scratch experience is required but a Scratch account is recommended if the student wants to save his/her work. Students can create a Scratch account at https://scratch.mit.edu/ with the help of an adult.

Registration is required through the West Des Moines Public Library. Visit their event page to register.
