I liked learning to make a SCRATCH sprite draw different shapes. I liked learning how to clone a Sprite and I liked learning how to make a game.”
This course led my son to learn about how to use Scratch and designing using this program as well. This has been a lot of fun, not only for him but myself as well. It has been not only educational, but fun as well. It will benefit him greatly in learning these technology courses as the future of technology continues to advance and be the future.”
