EPIC - Elementary Programming

Given the unpredictable nature of the COVID-19 pandemic and current health guidelines, UNH has cancelled its 2020 in-person summer on-campus youth programs.

EPIC is offering a remote learning opportunity for students in the summer of 2020!

Intro to Computer Science with Scratch Game Design

Dive into programming logic with Scratch, the drag-and-drop creative learning environment developed by MIT Media Lab. Students will use code blocks and characters to build a foundation in computational thinking, creating animated stories and games. Scratch's bright visuals and engaging design enhance the learning process, making it easy for the student to develop essential computational skills that are transferable to more advanced computer science topics.
