Scratch II: Algorithm Composing

The Scratch Level 2 course is a deep dive in Scratch for aspiring young programmers following the Scratch 101 course. After learning the fundamentals of Scratch and creative programming, students in the Scratch 102 course solidify their understanding of key computer science concepts including sequences, loops, conditionals, abstraction and object-oriented programming by creating more advanced and even more fun interactive games and projects. In this course, students will also start to use broadcasts to trigger events, thus learning systematic programming.
