In this course, young students enter the world of computer science by learning how to create animations, computer games, and interactive projects. Using Scratch, a graphical programming language developed at MIT, students learn fundamental programming concepts such as variables, loops, conditional statements, and event handling. As they teach a mischievous cat to dance, explore a maze, or play games, students learn how to use math and computer code to think creatively. The course will show students how to make and import objects, create audio recordings, and use them to develop interactive projects. At the end of the course, students create their own computer game and share it with their LA Makerspace instructor and classmates. This is a special workshop: For Kids and By Kids!  This hands-on, interactive experience is for kids ages 5-12 year olds and their families, and will be taught by Scratch Instructor Chris Mosier and his team of 6th Grade Scratch Experts. Requirements * No previous programming skills are required, but students should be comfortable using a computer and browser, and managing files. * Please bring a laptop to play along, as we won't have extras on hand.  * Scratch is a free program and can be installed prior to class here.   About the Instructor Chris Mosier is the Director of Educational Technology at Archer School in West LA, and has spent last fall working with the Scratch team at the Lifelong Kindergarten Group at MIT Media Lab. He has been a technology coordinator at two schools for the last ten years (training teachers how to use technology in their classrooms, blending tech into lessons, and supporting teachers and students.) He has experience presenting, and has led a workshop on Scratch last year at CUE Conference-- California's annual teaching/tech conference.  He grew up in Central Wisconsin, but has spent the last ten years here in sunny Los Angeles.
