Summer Programming Class at the MADE – Classes Now Forming

This Summer…YOUR KIDS WILL LEARN TO PROGRAM VIDEO GAMES!!!

The Museum of Art and Digital Entertainment (MADE) will be hosting its second annual Scratch programming class for kids ages 8 to 12. Campers will learn to program in Scratch, play old-school video games (no “Call of Duty!”), and learn about game mechanics in a video game museum. Camps run Monday through Friday from 10 AM to 3 PM with free play included. 

So, What IS Scratch and How Will It Help My Kids?

Simply put, Scratch is one of the best initial programming languages out there. Developed at MIT, freely available for download at scratch.mit.edu and available for Mac, Windows and Linux, Scratch is an awesome, graphically-driven, template-based language that teaches proper programming fundamentals.

Tuition and Scheduling:

The camps will run $250 a week per camper for the following weeks:

June 17 – 21

June 24 – 28

July 15 – 19

July 22 – 26

For more information, e-mail camp director Manuel Tovar or drop by the MADE’s open hours between 12 PM to 6 PM any Wednesday, Saturday or Sunday at the following address:

610 16th St., Suite 230

Oakland, CA.
