Advanced Scratch Programming for Kids
What you'll learn
- Make high-quality games in Scratch
- Program visual effects
- Create stories, charcters and levels
- Draw perfect shapes
- Learn advanced programming techniques
- Must already know how use Scratch basic blocks
In this course, we'll learn how to make AMAZING games with Scratch! This is the follow-up to the immensely popular course "Programming for Kids and Beginners: Learn to Code in Scratch".
We already assume you know how to code in Scratch. In this course, I'll show you some advanced tips that will allow you to make high-quality games in Scratch. In this course, we'll learn how to program
perfectly symmetrical snowflakes
stories and characters
power-ups and lives
explosions, lasers and more
As before, we'll learn by doing. The course is designed so that you create the games and applications with your own two hands. But what makes this course truly unique is the teaching method I've used live 4+ years. We learn a variety of computer science topics, but we hide the complexity behind characters, animations, analogies and fun!
That's because, in these carefully designed lessons, we train our intuition to make sense of what we want to achieve and how to get there. This will help you quickly master the basics. After this course, you'll learn text-based programming languages at a blazing speed and quickly make sense of any piece of code.
The content is designed to be fun! I made these games to optimize learning computer science topics while having fun along the way. I will also update the course on a regular basis with new content - and challenges!
This course is designed for
parents or teachers who want to give their children the best skills and most fun
kids and beginners who want to learn to code games
anyone new to programming who doesn't know where to start
I can't wait to have you in the course!
The course is regularly updated with new material, tips and tricks that you can use in your games and projects!
Please note that Udemy is a big place. Those under 18 may use this course only if a parent or guardian opens their account, handles any enrollments, and manages their account usage. I'm pretty sure you're doing that anyway, but it's worth emphasizing.
Who this course is for:
- Scratch users (kids, parents, teachers) who want to make some high-quality, advanced games
I'm a software engineer with a passion for teaching. Big fan of Scala and the JVM.
I have a Master's Degree in Computer Science and I wrote my Bachelor and Master theses on Quantum Computation. Before starting to learn programming, I won medals at international Physics competitions.
For 7+ years, I've taught a variety of Computer Science topics to 30000+ of students at various levels. I've held Hour of Code for 7 year-olds, I've taught university students who now work at Google and Facebook, I've held live trainings for software engineering teams at Adobe and Apple, and I'm now so excited to share what I know with a wider community online.
