With Scratch, you can program your own interactive stories, games, and animations — and share your creations with others in the online community.

Scratch helps young people learn to think creatively, reason systematically, and work collaboratively — essential skills for life in the 21st century.         http://www.scratch.mit.edu

 

WestView Learning offers learning SCRATCH 3.0 as an introduction to the structure of a programming language.  SCRATCH is a block programming language – which means that literally blocks can be dragged into a program sequence, tweaked with reference to a sprite or a number, and a whole new game, animation or story can be created.

SCRATCH is a program that is accessible to students as young as 6 or 7 and as old as 99! Therefore, we offer the following classes in the Winter/Spring of 2020:
