The ORD is offering two opportunities to try Coding with YEL! Coding this summer!

Scratch® is an MIT created and monitored, kid-safe web interface. It uses a drag and drop programming interface to teach students of all levels coding practices. Your child will receive a Scratch user name and password so they can access their projects from any computer at anytime.

Grade as of 24-25 School Year

 YEL! Coding Kiddos Summer Camp

Each YEL! Coding class introduces kiddos to new coding, animation, and video game design concepts like movement blocks, animation, dialogue, timing, and more.  YEL! Coding Coaches use Scratch® Junior to guide kiddos through our lessons and create their own animated stories and video games. 

 YEL! Coding - Animation and Video Games

Each YEL! Coding class follows three basic components:

  • Teach It!  Students learn different video game and storytelling design techniques (movement blocks, control blocks, basic animation, adding scores, etc.)
  • Code It!  Students use Scratch® to code their own story and video games.
  • Explore It!  Students can write their own story and video game code, experiment with it and test new options. Our collaborative learning environment encourages students to learn from each other.
