FSI students participated in an 8-week long workshop learning the foundations of coding and video game design through the programming language Scratch.
Thanks to Chris DeFiore, for facilitating this Beyond-the-Bell learning experience, and for sharing links to the students’ creations.
Chris had this to say about the FSI Coders:

“Congratulations to all of the students who completed the course! They modeled, creativity, inquiry, and persistence as they problem-solved their code to create a wide variety of games. Below are some examples of the final projects students developed at the end of the course.”
