How many balloons can you pop in one minute? Find out with us as we create an arcade game in Scratch called Balloon Pop. Scratch is a blocks-based programming language created at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology to help make it easier to learn to program. Participants will create the entire game start to finish using a technique called progressive refinement. They will start with some basic functionality and add new features in small chunks. Along the way, they will learn foundational computer science concepts including variables, loops, conditionals, functions, and events and event handlers. No prior programming experience is required.
This class will be Thursday 5/2 from 10:30am-12:40pm
