Programming Leader: Ms. Adrianna Mendez

 

Programming Laguages: Scratch, Alice, & Python

 

Scratch:

  

 

Ms.Adriana Mendez will lead a seminar in which participants will learn about computer programming and design using “Scratch.” Scratch is a programming language that makes it fun and challenging to create interactive stories, animations, games, music, and art. As young people create and share Scratch projects, they learn important mathematical and computational ideas, while also learning to think creatively, reason systematically, and work collaboratively.

 

Alice:

  

Ms. Adrianna Mendez will teach you the wonderful animated world of Alice.  Alice is a great introduction to the Professional Programming Laguage of Java, which is one of the most powerful, and popular programming languages used today.  Students will use click and drag commands to create their own animated world.  They will create things from  their own greeting card, to their own interactive video game!

 

Python: (Pictures to come soon!)

 

 

 

 

 

Ms. Adriana Mendez will lead a seminar in which participants will learn about computer programming and design using Python, a popular text-based programming language for beginning programmers.  Students will learn how to program a Finch robot, dealing with different movements, sounds, and lighting effects.
