Video Game Programming

Grades 3-5  Classes start February 6th!  6-7pm

 This class requires solid reading and math and the ability to focus for an hour, except for a short break. 

Does your kid dream of writing his or her own video games? We’ve found a great way to get started: Scratch, the super-simple drag-and-drop multimedia programming language designed by MIT‘s Lifelong Kindergarten project.  We’ll be starting with simple projects and working up from there.

Important: this transaction will appear on your credit card as PAYPAL *ADVENTURESW or PAYPAL *AWROBOTS or PAYPAL *ROBOTS

NOTE: Scratch is available to anyone for free on the Internet. Learn it at home! Or, sign up for one of our classes so one of The Great Adventure Lab’  trained instructors can lead you through a lesson plan, where you’ll learn how to make characters walk, talk and boogie across the screen.
