Join us for a fun-filled hour to play a set of Kahoot! games and review coding concepts students have learned in Scratch coding classes. We will play 3 levels - starting from level 1, all the way to Level 3. Everyone is welcome to join. You can play Kahoot! from a phone, tablet, or computer.
If you would like to learn more about Scratch, you could join our free intro classes to get started. Sign up here https://www.create-learn.us/topic/scratch.
Join, have fun, and learn!
Do your kids love planet or outer space? Do they want to tell their stories about it with coding? Join this coding fair, and get inspirations from advanced students who use their favorite coding tools to create animations, games, or apps about planet! We encourage kids to use Scratch, Python, Minecraft, or any of their favorite coding tools. After the event, you will find your child more motivated to create with coding!
Do you want to become a YouTuber? The first step is to learn how to create exciting videos that captivate your audience. In this class we'll go over a few key techniques that can be used to keep your viewers coming back for more. These techniques include learning how to trim video, adding the appropriate music, and how to overlay text. By the end of class you'll have a video that is ready to upload to your YouTube channel! Feel free to bring your own video clips (especially video of your coding!), but we will have some samples for you to experiment with if you prefer.
Creating social media platforms such as Youtube must be 13 years and older. This class will not teach students how to start a Youtube channel, but will only teach them how to create great videos that they can use in their existing or future Youtube channels. If students consider creating a Youtube channel, parents must be by their child for guidance.
Officially, YouTube forbids children under the age of 13 to create their own accounts, and children between ages 13 and 17 are only allowed to open accounts with parental permission. Parents are allowed to create their children a Youtube channel. It is important that parents monitor and help their children when creating a Youtube channel.

Saving the World with Supercomputers!
Computers are helping us solve many toughest problems in the world from understanding climate change, environmental impacts, expansion of the universe, to decoding viruses like COVID19. The toughest problems need more powerful computers, in fact, they need supercomputers! So what's a supercomputer? No, it doesn't have a cape. :) How does it work? And most importantly, what problems can it solve? In this talk, one of the top experts, Prof. Yelick from UC Berkeley, will introduce you to the fascinating field of Supercomputers and the powerful things they can deliver.
Prof. Yelick received her PhD degree in Computer Science in MIT. She is a professor of Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences at Berkeley and the Associate Laboratory Director for Computing Sciences at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory.

Special Event: UC Berkeley Campus Tour in Minecraft
On this event, the Berkeley team and an official Berkely tour guide will take you to tour their entire campus built in Minecraft. Join this event to explore more than 100 buildings in the Minecraft campus and the student life in Berkeley. If you have the Minecraft Java Edition, you can also have the chance to log into Minecraft and actually walk around (and fly) in this meticulously built campus with the Berkeley students. Since the spots to log into Minecraft are limited, please also fill out the below form to save your spots and we will pick randomly from the form.
Fill out this form if you want to log into Minecraft for the tour (require Minecraft Java Edition): https://forms.gle/dtrfCBx3iMkSWnPZ9
