Programming in 3 days: Scratch
A while before the Christmas holidays from 2018 to 2019 I got an assignment to develop a course for children to introduce them to programming. The client was the former Groninger Forum and I didn’t have much time to develop the course. Soon I realized the best way to introduce children to programming, namely “Scratch”, which is a drag-and-drop programming environment where you can easily create games and animations. In a few weeks, I had developed a 3-day course during which the children were introduced to the basics of programming and eventually made their own game. The children really enjoyed it and were interested in discovering new possibilities. One of the children had even finished her game and published it on Scratch. You can find it via this link.
To keep a long story short, I think it makes sense to say that the course was successful.
If you would like to experience this course yourself, you can contact me via the form on the contact page.
