Background Information
BEGINNER - Level 1
Program Description
Do you want to code your own video game but don’t know where to start? Start from here! Build your own video games using Scratch, a platform developed and maintained by MIT Media Lab. Scratch is a block-based programming language that is used by more than 60 million users in 150 different countries. In the first course of this track, you will code and share video games with bright visuals and engaging designs. Also, you will learn how to use the basic principles of programming like loops, if-statements, event triggers, and message broadcasts to code complete video games.

Learning Outcomes
Learn about and apply fundamental computer science concepts such as loops, if—statements, event triggers, and message broadcasts
Use and apply computer science concepts to create complete video games from beginning to end
Apply the principles of good game design
Manage and use game assets such as characters, backdrops, and sounds

Program Description
Build on your solid understanding of Scratch by creating complex programs that use advanced coding concepts like lists, message broadcasts, sorting algorithms, and Scratch extensions. In the second course of this track, you will enjoy a step-by-step visual approach to coding that makes even the most difficult programming concepts easy to master. These new concepts and tools will let you code complex games with multiple levels and difficulties. It will also give you a glimpse of how professional developers build games.

Learning Outcomes
Learn advanced coding concepts such as lists, message broadcasts, and control structures
Explore and use the concept of functions, parameters, and local variables
Use various Scratch extensions like the pen, music, and video sensing extensions
Apply the principles of good game design to create games with multiple levels and difficulties

ADVANCED - Level 3
Program Description
Artificial Intelligence is all around us. It is the technology that powers everything from Alexa and Siri, to Snapchat filters and YouTube’s recommended videos. In the final course of this track, you will learn about the different types of artificial intelligence by building several games and interactive projects using the block-based coding language, Scratch. These projects include a chatbot, a program that converts handwriting to computer text, a program that recognizes images, and a program that can decide whether a sentence is kind or mean.

Learning Outcomes
Understand what artificial intelligence is and how it is used in the real world
Identify some of the different branches of artificial intelligence
Learn about the uses of artificially intelligent machines
