Young Hacks Academy: Agent Training - Saratoga Springs, NY
*The event has already taken place on this date: Fri, 07/19/2019
For students in Grades 5-7
Agent Training recruits are on a mission to tackle today’s important issues using coding principles and video game development.
Preparing the next generation of leaders and problem-solvers, YHA Agent Training introduces the fundamentals of coding through the fun and user-friendly programming tool, Scratch. Agents embark on daily missions to create engaging video games and compelling interactive stories. The challenge is to come up with a project that will not only be entertaining, but also promote awareness about important issues impacting our local and global community.
Agent Training will be extended with AT Plus materials for those students who already have a strong background in Scratch from previous YHA sessions or other learning experiences. These new resources will introduce advanced concepts in programming logic, allowing students to create even more engaging games by the end of the week.
