Campers Program Their Own Games with Hopscotch

In their first session of Adventures in Coding the campers were introduced to Hopscotch, an iOS app designed to teach children the basic elements of coding and programming. By manipulating simple drag and drop blocks, Hopscotch introduces children to fundamental programming concepts such as sequencing, abstraction, values and conditionals. The app allows children to sequence code to create simple games, animations, and art.  Today the campers worked with the app and progressed through several of the app’s coding levels to create increasingly more complex movements, animations and games. They enjoyed sharing the games they created by projecting them on the Apple TV and presentation screen.
