Scratch & Cryptography (Sending Secret Messages)​

Have you ever wanted to send secret messages to your friends? In this coding workshop you’ll learn how to make (encrypt) secret messages that only your friends can open (decrypt) and read. Students will learn what a cipher is and how they work, what is encryption, what is decryption, and code a secret message app in Scratch.

This class is for students how have completed Scratch Beginner 2. 

Scratch & Smart Home (micro:bits)

Smart homes are homes which have smart gadgets which provides the house with information, such as light sensors, digital assistances, and refrigerators that tell you when to buy more milk. Let’s learn how to code the micro:bit and its sensors to make smart devices for your house such as burglar alarms and temperature sensors.

This class is for students how have completed Scratch Beginner 2. 

Scratch & A.I. Game Bots​

Do you want to learn how to make a game with bots that can make decisions for themselves and beat a human player? In this coding workshop students will learn what is A.I., how to make a game bot that can make intelligent decisions, and make a game in Scratch with computer opponents.

This class is for students how have completed Scratch Beginner 2. 

Scratch & Virtual Robotics (VR bots)

What is a robot and how can you code one? Let’s learn how to code and control robots in Scratch. Students will program a virtual robot in Scratch which they can code to move, sense the environment around it, solve puzzles, and challenges. Students will learn what is a robot, what are sensors, and how to code their VR robots.

This class is for students how have completed Scratch Beginner 2.
