Let’s Code! Holiday Club
Scratch is a coding platform that can be used to create all sorts of fun games and programs! The Coding Club will kick off with Scratch and launch into Stencyl. Using project based learning, this Coding Club is perfect for those that have never done coding before yet holds wondrous surprises for the more experienced coder as we use the scratch platform in a way you may have never considered.
