Choose between making a basketball game or mix and match across sports!
2-5: Coding Adventure
In 200 Story Mode and Skill Mode challenges, users help the monkey catch bananas through learning and writing code. Coding Adventure Part I teaches objects, loops, variables, array indexing, functions and more. Part II teaches boolean logic (if-else, AND, OR and NOT), comparisons, function return values and triggering events using the mouse and keyboard. Personalized hints and tips are included every step of the way.
2-5: Coding Pirates
Captain Hack is a pirate looking for treasure. He also writes treasure maps, and writing those like writing code. He (the player) uses "pirate code" for this. It is a symbol-based programming language, used for instructions and even AI behaviors. movements, loops, GO-TO's, true/false-statements are all core parts of the game. The players are guided through a tutorial and presented for the posibilities, step by step. There are no correct solution for the tutorial levels, so the user can chose whatever solution they like.
2-5: CS Tech Jam
IN this multi-lesson project students learn about digital citizenship and follow a design thinking model to solve a problem that they choose! Students will create a game intended to teach users a lesson about responsible digital citizenship. All resources are located in-platform.
2-5: Dance Party
Code a Dance Party to share with your friends. Featuring Katy Perry, Madonna, J. Balvin, Sia, Keith Urban, Ciara, and 25 more!

2-5: ITCH Bouncing Ball (in Scratch)
We take you through an introduction to Itch, utilizing the Scratch visual programming language. This lesson provides a video and text directions for the code students need to add to get a ball bouncing zanily around the screen. Once students complete this activity there is an opportunity to explore with ideas for other changes and activities that can be made. There is no set goal or outcome as it's an open learning environment, but with just this starting code students come up with amazing projects! All instruction is contained within the Itch environment so there is no need to be switching screens to follow along with the project. Headphones are recommended.
2-5: ITCH Stop Frame Animation (Scratch)
We'll be using Itch to build our own stop frame animation projects. Note that headphones are recommended for this course. We will use some existing sprites that support animations and show the code we need to add to animate our characters. We'll also go over how to create our very own animation effects and drawings. We'll learn how to change a sprite costume in scratch repeatedly for animation effects (similar to a flip-book animation) and the code behind it. All instruction is contained within the Itch environment so there is no need to be switching screens to follow along with the project.
2-5: Kano Pixel Hack
Creators of all ages learn to code in a real programming language and watch their commands come to life by drawing a sequence of 13 pictures with code. They'll learn along the way about video game art history from Pong and other retro games through 8-bit art and Minecraft, weaving together computer science with art, history, and storytelling. The implementation is flexible––you can spend 1 hour or a few hours over one or multiple sessions.

2-5: Turtle Drawing
Students start programming in Python right away using our drag to text toolkit and guided instructions! In this activity students learn coding by completing a series of challenges to lead turtle out of a maze! Students learn draw with turtle and finish by creating their own turtle art!
3-5: Learn to Code with Hot Wheels
Learn to program with Hot Wheels in this high-octane racing game! Choose from a wide selection of cars, then learn to program as you navigate through complex race tracks. Jump over obstacles, skid around corners, and win the race. You can even program your own race tracks and challenge your friends to race on them.
