Advanced Scratch Game Design - Code - Kids Develop 21st Century Game Design & Cutting Edge- STEM Skills
Grades 4 and up

Hands-on Experience and cutting – edge technology skills are the key to a successful future in the 21st Century! The Renaissance Tech team sparks kids to master essential STEM skills while having fun!
 
Talented coders, game developers, robotics engineers, and designers have the skills to succeed in the 21st century. More and more families are turning to Renaissance for world-class STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) education via summer programs.
 
Students continue to build their game-design skills as they use Scratch, MIT’s open-source software, for designing and playing indie games. They build on previous skills including problem-solving, reasoning and design as they increase their knowledge and ability in computer game design. 
 
Scratch was recently named one of the top 20 programming languages in the world, but unless you’re into kids’ computer programming, you probably haven’t heard of it. Scratch teaches the fundamental knowledge that students need to move on to more challenging languages, like Java, Python, or a C-based language. It teaches sequence, debugging, looping, conditionals, and variables, but all in a very user-friendly graphical interface. 
 
If your child is unfamiliar with Scratch, they can take our class from earlier in the summer to prepare for this one.
