Bi-weekly Scratch coding sessions. Each session we will build a game, solve a Scratch challenge, and answer viewer questions. We’ll cover a wide variety of types of game styles and learn to use some of the lesser-known Scratch coding blocks. Whether you are brand new to Scratch and programming or have worked with Scratch before, there should be something fun to learn.
Each session will be posted to our Coding YouTube channel.
