This course is meant to introduce students with some coding experiences how to apply their coding knowledge through a creative outlet. Throughout the course, students will be designing and coding their own projects on Scratch, whether it be a cartoon, video game, art piece, or other media form. This is a very creativity oriented course where students decide what they want to add to their projects such as characters, actions, backgrounds, etc and must figure out the right code to get the feature they want. Students will have to use their problem solving skills and independent research to create the right code, with aid from the instructor when needed. Students will discover the applications of coding through this process of creating their Scratch projects and eventually make the connection of how coding is used in real life. Course design by Shannon Lee, class instruction by Stephanie Lau.
