Game Design with Scratch – Fall 2017

Level up your programming skills with Game Design with Scratch. This class meets on Thursdays, 6-7pm, for 6 weeks, November 2-December 14 (no class November 23). Kids will learn the basics of game design, and will then vote to select up to 3 games to learn how to build. By building the games, kids will learn new programming concepts, and get experience working with conditions, loops, variables, and events.
 
This class is recommended for kids in grades 2-6 who have already attended Introduction to Programming, or have equivalent experience with Scratch.

YouTube Star – Fall 2017

Does your child want to be the next YouTube super star? Let us show them the ropes! Kids will learn about:

  • Staying safe on the Internet
  • Planning interesting videos
  • Recording and editing videos, including adding music and voiceovers
  • Exporting videos for YouTube

You can see examples of videos kids have already made on our YouTube channel. We typically have the kids create a challenge video, walkthrough/tutorial, interview, and unboxing, but we work with the class to determine the best videos to produce with that class.

We typically upload all videos to the Coder Kids Club YouTube Channel, because technically, your kids aren’t old enough for their own YouTube channels! If your child does have a YouTube channel, he or she can bring in a flash drive and grab his or her videos, to upload with you at home.

This class meets 6-7pm on Wednesdays, November 1-December 13 (no class November 22). We recommend this class for kids in grades 3-8. Younger kids are also welcome to join us, but might need a parent to help.

Important: Each student needs a USB headset with microphone for this class. We very highly recommend this onehttp://amzn.to/29e7B72. We know that particular headset works every time with our hardware and software. If you want your child to use a different headset, please make sure it’s USB, and not 3.5mm headphone and microphone jacks. If your child isn’t using the recommended headset, you will need to stick around when we record with the headsets (at least once), to get it working properly with our hardware and software. Please make sure your child’s headset is clearly labeled with his or her name on it, and bring it to and from class each week.
