Intro to Scratch

Sat, March 17
10:00 am - 11:45 am


Learn to code with this simple, powerful visual programming environment!

With Scratch, you can program your own interactive stories, games, and animations, and share your creations with others in the online community. Scratch helps young people learn to think creatively, reason systematically, and work collaboratively, essential skills for life in the 21st century.

At this introductory workshop, we’ll help students create free accounts and explain the basics of sprites, costumes, and coding with visual blocks to create engaging, interactive stories. Students will learn to incorporate rich, multimedia into their projects.

This event is part of NERD Summit, an annual gathering organized by New England Regional Developers! NERD Summit is a collaborative effort with the local community, creating a diverse curriculum for relevant skill building. NERDs creates positive and supportive learning opportunities for people who work, or want to work in web and related technology. Too many smart, passionate people have been traditionally excluded from tech careers, and we’re changing that.

Space is limited – please register on this page to let us know you are coming. You can bring your own laptop or use one of ours. Also, please register with the NERD Summit so they have an accurate estimate of attendance. Thanks!
