This program is an introduction to computer programming and coding for your tech
junkie. We use the SCRATCH language to teach the basics of computer coding, which is a
graphical programming language developed at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. With
Scratch the students learn important mathematical and computational ideas, while also
learning to think creatively, reason systematically and work collaboratively. The aim is to help
students develop a good level of fluency with digital technology by learning how to read and
write computer language.
