Kids Learning Code: Animating with Scratch (For Ages 9-12) - Halifax

Why learn about Animating?
From Saturday morning cartoons to blockbuster films, animating has the power to inspire, educate, and entertain.

Traditionally, animation involves drawing several pictures, sometimes thousands, then playing them in sequence to create the illusion of movement. Today, we have digital tools that help us create animations more easily by letting us control characters, backgrounds, and even sounds with code.

This experience offers learners the opportunity to express their creativity in a super fun environment, and learn about the different elements of a story, as well as basic design principles. Using Scratch, a beginner level programming environment, learners will create interactive stories through animation. They will also be introduced to Scratch's amazing online community, where they will have the opportunity to upload their projects for others to enjoy!

Each Animating & Storytelling with Scratch workshop has the same flow, but different activities. Come and create a new animation every time!
