A programming workshop for kids aged 7 to 12, intended to teach the participants how to make their own video games. The workshop employs a simple software for creating video games that allows us to combine visual and sound elements into an interactive whole. The participants will get a handle on the increasingly popular tool for learning programming, MIT Scratch. It is a piece of technology intended for kids and beginners developed at MIT. At the end of the workshop, the participants will create their own video game.
