Stamford Young Makers: Scratch Video Game Programming
Sunday, December 9, 2012 from 1:00 PM to 2:30 PM (EST)
San Francisco, California
London, United Kingdom
MIT’s Scratch is a visual, block-based programming language that enables everyone, especially young people, to create sophisticated and interactive computer programs without having to know a syntax, text-based language. Scratch users can create games, visualizations, animations, and music.
HTINK instructor Lyel Resner will teach the basics of video game design.
The class will be hosted by Jeff Palladino:

HTINK's Young Maker programs create and support informal learning environments in the NYC tri-state area for students to learn about design and tinkering. In addition to working with traditional hand tools, students also learn about how the physical world interacts with the virtual world through electronics and physical computing. We encourage self-directed learning, where students have extensive input about the projects they pursue. Whether it is making their own video games, building robots, or creating interactive clothing, students create their own individualized projects while gaining a common set of skills that they can share with their peers. Through tinkering and making, participants develop their problem solving and computational thinking abilities.
