Class Experience

What better way to learn than with a friend? Through Critter Coding, participants start by creating their own Critter character on paper, then as a sock animal, and then take their new friend digital, programming in Scratch to make their Critter into a video game character! This critter opens the doors to creative computational thinking and problem solving while also producing a snugly friend. Through arts and crafts, imagination, and Computer Science skills our participants will bring a character of their own making to life in person and on-screen! A grownup or older student needs to be near during class just in case students need help with seeing.


Students will be sewing with materials from a kit mailed to your address. A grownup or older student needs to be on hand in case assistance is needed with craft activities.

Harris loved learning a new system Tinker


Virtual is a little harder. I think Harris would benefit from some one on one attention.
