Game Master with Scratch
Watch the kids create their own games and animation as well as presenting their project to parents and friends.
Holiday Camp Info
20th March 2019
8:30am - 5:30pm
Learn how to create an interactive game with Scratch, a visual programming language developed by MIT.
Starting with simple and fun games, young coders will be guided to use Code Blocks to eventually create their own games.
The design, construction and testing of the games will enhance Computational Thinking and the use of Scratch will lay the foundation for advanced programming languages.
• Basic coding principles
• Programming in Scratch
• Apply design-thinking in creating a game
• Code your own unique game & play it with friends
Q1: What is Scratch Programming?
Scratch is a programming language which children can code and create interactive media such as stories, games, and animation. As children create with Scratch, they learn to think creatively, work collaboratively, and reason systematically.
Q2: What is ICT Learning Roadmap from IMDA?
An ICT Learning Roadmap has been developed as a guide in structuring progressive ICT training in various domains. It guides interested students who aspire towards various areas of learning.
Q3: How does developing games enhance computational thinking?
Developing games simulates logical reasoning and trains up young children to structure data and codes. Through the procress, they will learn how to spot patterns, decompose complex tasks and hone their computational thinking skills.
