Biology & Scratch

Camp Schedule

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

In this course, students will learn about the basics of Biology (cell structure, cell division, genetics, and the immune system) and learn how to code (model) it in Scratch.  We’ll use Scratch to create simple programs to illustrate and explain biology.  And then kids will apply the biology they learned in Scratch games and animations.

Learning Outcomes

  • Learn how to use Scratch to model Biology.
  • Learn the basics of Biology.
  • Continue to develop core coding skills.
  • Cultivate and Develop problem-solving and critical logic skills.

LEGO Robotics & Scratch

Camp Schedule

In the Tinker Garage LEGO Robotics & Scratch camp, kids spend all their time programming LEGO Wedo robots using Scratch.   LEGO WeDo is a popular educational robotics kit for kids.

In this course, students will learn about robotics, build LEGO robots, and most importantly learn how to  write Scratch programs to control the robots.  Their Scratch programs will interact with the real world using the LEGO WeDo motor, motion sensor, and tilt sensor.  Kids will also learn how to use the LEGO sensors to provide feedback to their Scratch programs, enabling things like interactive game controllers, motion alarms, and Scratch games that intersect with the real world.

Who is this coding class for?

  • Children 6-12 & 12-17 years old
  • Completed at least Scratch Beginner II (or by approval)
