Get your sneakers on. We will be playing fun games like "Loopy Loop", "SORRY - you have dialled the wrong condition", "Would ARRAY number 400 please stand up?", etc. These games are part of CODE-IT HACKS unique curriculum and methodology to introduce coding concepts in a super fun manner.
Using MIT's Block base SCRATCH platform, create and animate characters by learning about movement commands, sounds, changing colours and other exciting actions. Students will work together on projects and learn to troubleshoot each other's code.
