The workshops will also be useful for educators and mentors who are engaged in informal education through Club-houses, CoderDojo, TechSpace and other similar youth programmes.

Introduction to Programming (Scratch 1: Introduction & Animation)

Scratch is a visual programming language developed by MIT which has become very popular in secondary schools. It uses a simple drag and drop, block based interface and is suitable for developing animations and games. This workshop is for those who are new to Scratch and also provides a quick introduction into algorithmic thinking (“how to think like a computer”) before delving into the production of a short multi-scene animation using Scratch.

There are no pre-requisites for attendance.

**Suitable for teachers of any subject, primary or post-primary**
