Description:

100 Level - No experience necessary

Chris Bosh talks about how learning to code helps you "pick and choose" what you want to do, no matter what you're interested in. One of the easiest ways to get started with programming is to remix someone else's already existing program.

CHALLENGE: Create a holiday, birthday, thank you, or "just because" card using "Scratch". Create a Scratch account (you will need to sign in later to share your work with us!). Complete the step-by-step "Holiday" card tutorial and create your very own interactive card. The final step will be to name your code and make it shareable through a unique URL. You must be logged in to save!

Scratch is a desktop application, so it won't work when viewed on phones and tablets.

SUBMIT the url to your project here so that we can see your work.
