Skill Samurai Scratch 2 Foundations provides a deeper look at game development using MIT’s Scratch 3.0. Covering key computer programming concepts such as event listeners, while loops, If-then statements, variables, and randomization, we build a series of progressively more rigorous projects that build students’ understanding of basic computer science.
Skill Samurai’s research-based, project based learning (PBL) approach to Scratch 2 keeps the learning fun and engaging, while ensuring a solid foundation in CS.
Upon successful completion of Scratch 2 Foundations, students will be ready to graduate to Scratch 3 Foundations.
Scratch 2 Foundations Curriculum – Ages 7 To 10The Scratch 2 Foundations course normally takes between 2 and 4 months to complete, depending upon course frequency, the student’s prior programming experience, and student’s dedication to our homework assignments. Our student-centered teaching approach allows us to progress at the student’s pace and our homework assignments are designed to promote independent mastery of the concepts covered. The projects in Scratch 2 Foundations are longer and more complex, and will produce interesting games and apps that can be played with friends and family.
