Anime & Creative Writing & Scratch Camp

Camp Schedule

In the Tinker Garage Anime & Creative Writing & Scratch camp, kids spend all their time creating and coding animated and interactive stories in Scratch.

In this course, students will learn about the basics of drawing in Scratch, animating in Scratch, creative story telling, and creating interactive stories in Scratch.  The primary focus of the course is coding, so students will learn new coding techniques and continue to hone their coding skills, but they will do this all while learning about animation and creative writing and creating their own stories.

Who is this coding class for?

  • Children 6-12 & 12-17 years old
  • Completed at least Scratch Beginner II (or by approval)
  • No experience with animation required
  • Laptops and hardware devices provided

Learning Outcomes

  • Learn how to use Scratch to create anime and interactive stories.
  • Learn the basics of creative writing, story telling, and animation
  • Continue to develop core coding skills.
  • Cultivate and Develop problem-solving and critical logic skills.
  • Appreciation of the application of Science and Mathematics in coding.

Class Structure

  • Course Duration: 10 hours
  • Small Class Size: 6 students maximum

 

Upcoming Anime & Creative Writing & Scratch Camps

Physics & Scratch Camp

Camp Schedule

In the Tinker Garage Physics & Scratch camp, kids spend all their time coding Scratch projects related to Physics.

In this course, students will learn about the basics of Physics (motion, velocity, acceleration, and gravity) and learn how to code (model) it in Scratch.  We’ll use Scratch to create simple programs to illustrate and explain Physics.  And then kids will apply the physics they learned in Scratch games and animations.  They’ll learn how to use acceleration to create more realistic motion, use gravity to make objects fall and bounce, and use parabolic motion to make objects thrown in games fall more realistically.

Who is this coding class for?

  • Children 6-12 & 12-17 years old
  • Completed at least Scratch Beginner II (or by approval)
  • No experience with physics required
  • Laptops and hardware devices provided

Learning Outcomes

  • Learn how to use Scratch to model Physics. And apply Physics to Scratch programs.
  • Learn the basics of Physics.
  • Continue to develop core coding skills.
  • Cultivate and Develop problem-solving and critical logic skills.
  • Appreciation of the application of Science and Mathematics in coding.

Class Structure

  • Course Duration: 10 hours
  • Small Class Size: 6 students maximum

 

Upcoming Physics & Scratch Camps

Game Design & Scratch Camp

Camp Schedule

In the Tinker Garage Game Design & Scratch camp, kids spend all their time learning about games, game design, and creating games in Scratch.

In this course, students will learn not only how to make games in Scratch but they will also learn the basics of game design–what are the components of a game, how to create goals, rules, and challenges for a game, and what makes games interesting.  We will create different types of game in Scratch, from puzzle games, to platform games, to story based games.  Learn how to use basic physics to make motion in games more realistic. And most importantly, kids will use their creativity and the skills they’ve learned to design and create their own game from start-to-finish.

Who is this coding class for?

  • Children 6-12 & 12-17 years old
  • Completed at least Scratch Beginner II (or by approval)
  • No experience with game design required
  • Laptops and hardware devices provided

Learning Outcomes

  • Learn how to use Scratch to create more in-depth and interesting games.
  • Learn the basics of game design and what makes games interesting
  • Continue to develop core coding skills.
  • Cultivate and Develop problem-solving and critical logic skills.
  • Appreciation of the application of Science and Mathematics in coding.

Class Structure

  • Course Duration: 10 hours
  • Small Class Size: 6 students maximum
