ScratchJr is an introductory, visual programming language designed for young children to create their own interactive stories, games, and animations. In this summer camp, students will design and program their own racing game where they will program the movement and behavior of the characters or vehicles within the game by snapping together graphical programming blocks to make characters move, jump, dance, and sing. 

Scratch Jr. allows young learners to get a head start on their coding education and practice the fundamentals of coding using a simple, student-friendly interface. 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. Scratch Jr. is fun, easy to use, and requires no previous coding experience in order to excel, so come join us as we explore the exciting world of coding! 


In this course, students will gain a better understanding of the following concepts:

  • Scratch interface basics
  • Basic coding concepts
  • Drag-and-drop programming
  • Computational thinking
  • Computational fluency
  • Critical thinking
  • Design thinking
  • Problem-solving
  • Effective communication



ScratchJr is a free app for iPads, Android, and Chromebooks. ***ScratchJr Can Only Be Accessed on a Tablet!***

Instructor's Bio:

My specialty is that I can get the most out of my students using mainly positive reinforcement, since I started teaching, I have been primarily teaching an extracurricular activity, so the challenge was to motivate and discipline kids mainly by having a fun environment. I can turn boring projects into fun by just being silly and having fun with the students. E.g., I had to teach string manipulations the other day, which is boring, so I came up with a terrible rap about strings, the students loved it and we were all laughing and coming up with different ways to manipulate and change the raps. Another advantage I have when teaching is I am an avid gamer, so it's easy for me to relate material with the kids’ favorite games.


Educational Background, Degrees, Licenses:

  • Bachelors in Computer Information Systems
  • Specialty in web applications
  • Teaching coding for almost 2 years
  • C#, Python, HTML+CSS, C++, JavaScript


What I Tutor and Teach:

  • Scratch- I have over 300 projects, and taught pretty much everything, to age levels from elementary to middle school, including private lessons and small classes as well as camps
  • Python- I taught to all ages from elementary to high school, I also taught a series of camps to a private school
  • CSS-HTML I taught this to advanced elementary students, all the way to high schoolers
  • Robotics- I taught middle schoolers + advanced elementary students from beginner to advanced robotic classes using a micro bit


Fun Facts: 

  • I am an expert in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and have won at the highest level.


Favorite Quote: 

  • “I am always proud but never surprised” - I always say this when kids go above and beyond

Christina says:

My son was able to follow this class quite well and he just turned 7. He loves coding and got a lot out of it.

Hong L. says:

My son loved this course, and he learned how to use scratch to design a program.

Bryan says:

This class was a first-time coding class for my son. He loved it!

Bryan says:

Neil is very patient with younger kids. He tries to explain with easier language for kindergarteners. Thanks to this class, my son is advanced in his coding class at school.
