Learn to Code – Introduction to Scratch (ages 7+)
Scratch is a programming language and an online community where children can program and share interactive media such as stories, games, and animation with people from all over the world. As children create with Scratch, they learn to think creatively, work collaboratively, and reason systematically.

Learn to Code – Introduction to HTML5 (ages 10+)
HTML stands for Hypertext Markup Language and it has been the language of the web! HTML5 is the current version of the language. It is a text based rather than a block language which means students will be typing in text rather than dragging and tweaking ‘blocks’.
Participants in this class will learn to create a basic website with text, graphics and hyperlinks!
Learn to Code – Introduction to Python (ages 10+)
