Event Details

Course Descriptions 

Scratch 4-H Club (5-7th graders) 

This course is an introduction to computer science using the programming language Scratch, developed by MIT. Starting with the basics of using Scratch, the course will stretch your mind and challenge you. You will learn how to create amazing games, animated images and songs in just minutes with a simple “drag and drop” interface.

No previous programming knowledge needed. Join us as you start your computer science journey.

Python 4-H Club, Part 1 (8-10th graders) 

This club will provide an in-depth look at the details of Python layers and concepts. We will explore data types and variables, take a look at strings, input, testing, and formatting. From there, we'll learn about arguments and parameters, along with conditionals and nested conditionals. By the end of the course, you’ll be able to create programs that prompt users for input and use conditional (True/False) logic and Python methods to manipulate numbers and text to provide responses to the users, in addition to requesting further input. Plus, learn basic troubleshooting for your code.
