Learn to Code: Game Design with Scratch

Only until December 2019 Powerhouse Museum Book Tickets

Mastered the basics of visual computer programming and looking for a way to extend your class? Try our Scratch coding workshop – a fun, interactive program that will introduce your class to the endless possibilities of visual computer coding. Learners will use Scratch to create a simple game, while developing a deeper understanding of visual programming language along the way. Our educators will guide learners through customising character sprites and backgrounds, and controlling these elements with command blocks. Learners will then expand on their coding knowledge by combining multiple command blocks to create more complex scripts that keep track of player scores in their game using variables and conditional statements
