Many people view coding (computer programming) as a narrow technical skill. But the ability to code, like the ability to write, can help you learn many other things. When you learn to code, you learn important strategies for solving problems, designing projects, and communicating ideas -- essential skills for everyone. This workshop provides a hands-on introduction to Scratch, the most popular programming language for young people. You’ll have the opportunity to create your own interactive projects in Scratch, reflect on your learning experiences, and discuss ways of integrating coding into the classroom.

Scratch is now on the web!!
