Junior Hackathon with Scratch


The ability to code—for games, embedded systems, websites—is becoming an important part of literacy today

Scratch is a graphical, drag and drop code editor where coding blocks snap together to create interactive stories, games, and animations. Children are naturally excited about building things with building blocks, and Scratch taps into this excitement and makes coding fun.

Designed as a hackathon event, students design and code intensively on a software project.

Program methodology

Students learn the fundamentals of computer programming (such as variables, operators, conditionals) through a series of projects. The learning is infused with Design Thinking, where students turn their ideas into prototypes.

In this hackathon, students use Scratch, a programming language developed by MIT.
