Pentagon Challenge and Scratch Coding
This Discovering Computer Science & Programming with Scratch introduces young people to fundamental principles of computer programming, providing a foundation for exploring and creating! In this coding experience youth will learn the basic concepts of computer science with a simple "drag-and-drop" programming language. There is an increasing demand for individuals with college degrees in computer science. By 2020, there is expected to be over 1 million unfilled jobs for computer programmers simply because not enough people know how to code. Jobs in computer science are some of the top paying jobs for people with bachelor’s degrees.
This 4-H Code Club curriculum will provide youth with a head start on learning how to program a computer and think computationally. MIT’s “Scratch” is a visual programming language designed for youth embarking on a quest to master computer science.
All club meetings include a Scratch challenge meant to teach a variety of programming skills, a stretch break for healthy work habits, and time to work on a Scratch 4-H project.
New members, Friends and family are welcome to attend!
