Design games (with Scratch™)

How do you code a whole new world?

Lights, camera, interaction! 

The stage is set. You’ve got a brilliant story, bizarre characters, and an addictive loop going on in your head. Now how do you instruct this crazy cast to do crazy things?
 
It all boils down to logic. A set of instructions can be as downright simple or as ingeniously complex as you want it to be. In this studio, you’ll create an interactive learning game with your team using a software tool called Scratch™. Start with intuitive drag-and-drop interactions, or geek out fully by manipulating the code. Show the new Flappy Bird who’s boss!

Move your logical thinking skills light-years forward. Integrate scenes and sounds with actions and interactions. Build, test, and iterate. Code in a few fun surprises, then put your game on sale at the summer camp marketplace.

Grow in confidence and make new friends 
They may sound illogical at first, but the craziest, zaniest ideas are often those that ultimately change the world. As a Young Outlier, learn to express your ideas confidently (even if they sound kooky!), while being open to feedback. Level up your powers of reasoning, problem-solving and entrepreneurship. Develop the business skills and perseverance needed to develop an outstanding product from—ahem—scratch.
