Galileo’s nanodegree Introduction to Coding with Scratch will help students get started in a fun and engaging environment. They can create their own games and apps, strengthen their creativity and problem solving skills and manage their frustration while tackling challenges.
Whether they are brand new coders or have done coding before, this nanodegree will help them dig deeper into coding, use their creativity, collaborate, communicate, solve problems, and use their critical thinking skills to complete different activities.
Students will use the Scratch website to explore the Scratch community, add projects and give helpful and appropriate feedback on other projects. Everyone will be engaged in creating exploratory projects, while leading up to building longer programs in an open-ended project about each of their personal interests.
Weekly challenge details will be provided by the moderator, once the course gets started.
