Introduction to Programming
ABOUT THE COURSE
Galileo's Classroom is excited to present an Introduction to Programming (Scratch) course from Instructor Terri Beckles for students in grades K - 2.
PROGRAMMING WITH SCRATCH
In this course, students will learn the Scratch programming language. They will learn how to solve problems and express their solutions through animations, stories, and games. Fundamental programming concepts such as repetition and conditional execution will be taught. Students will learn to determine whether programming is the best tool for executing and presenting a solution.
