Scratch is a block coding program developed and maintained by students at MIT.  The program works on mobile devices as well as computers.  Students are easily able to create simple games, animations, and multi-part stories.  Suitable for students ages 7+, Scratch is suitable for use with iPads or computers, online or offline. Join our staff at WestView Learning for the Scratch workshop that suits the needs of your class.

 

For teachers with access to a classroom computer and a Makey Makey, learn about extending your coding to external devices created by your students.
