Intro to Digital Animation with Holyoke Codes
with Lissie Fein
Ages: For students entering 2nd through 5th grades.
Have fun this summer creating your own characters, stories, and games! With a few colorful blocks of Scratch code and some creativity you’ll be able to design your own character, animate it, and program it to talk, move, and have conversations. Add sound effects to make your projects even cooler.
Holyoke Codes is an organization dedicated to creating a fun learning environment for kids to get involved in coding, robotics, and technology. We provide access to resources and tools to develop technical skillsin an accessible, supportive environment while encouraging students to develop creativity, abstract thinking, systematic reasoning, collaborative working skills, and confidence.Through partnerships with afterschool programs we reach out to groups currently underrepresented in the technology industry, including people of color, low-income families, and girls.
This summer we will be taking very specific safety precautions to ensure the health of students and staff: requiring all students and staff to wear masks, socially distance and routinely wash hands, keeping each classroom size lower than usual, daily health screenings, and emphasizing outdoor class as much as possible. Outdoor class time will occur under a large tent or on our expansive playground.
