In this class, students will learn the steps necessary to make their own Pokemon Game using Scratch. The instructor will teach students how to use Scratch to visually program with “blocks” that link together to form “scripts,” or a group of coding instructions. These “scripts” will be used by students to begin coding their own simple video games.

In the process, students will not only have a blast learning, but they will also learn how to think outside the box, reason systematically, and work collaboratively- each an essential skill in today’s society.

This is an Introductory class and requires no previous coding experience in order to excel, so come join us as we explore the exciting world of coding!

Hi, I'm Mr. Cardenas! I have 3 years of teaching experience with Elementary, Middle, and High School Students. I have over 6 years of experience tutoring Elementary to Freshman College Students. All kids have different learning styles and can not be taught the same way. Understanding how one student thinks, how one learns and processes information is key to a successful session. Not only that it will keep them engaged, and interested. 


Educational Background, Degrees, Licenses:

  • Game Designer and Programmer
  • Bachelor of Science


Favorite Quote:

  • “In a dark place we find ourselves, and a little more knowledge lights our way.” -Yoda

Fun Fact:

  • Video games will be the new normal in teaching, training, and work environment 


Frankie says:

The instructor is patient and friendly. My child finds it easy to follow along and said the knowledge helped him to find more tools to design his games.

Chris says:

Our daughter was new to Minecraft online and this was a great starter program for her. The instructor was patient and supportive. Highly recommended. Our daughter has done a lot of language learning but this allows her to expand into a variety of projects using what she has learned and learn new things.

Zane says:

My son had a lot of fun in this class.
