Calling all K-12 educators who are interested in Scratch programming...
from Scratch newbies to Scratch experts!
Join us for a two-day, exciting, hands-on Scratch Camp for Educators on Monday, July 18th and Tuesday, July 19th from 9am - 3pm at Unisys Corporation in Roseville, MN.
Come and explore or dig deeper into computer programming using Scratch, a free, easy-to-learn, powerful language for creating games, stories and animations. This interactive training experience will focus on the many ways that coding can put the power of creating in students’ hands. We will personalize the learning experience by breaking into groups based on grade level and experience with Scratch.
Day 1 of Scratch Camp will focus on hands-on training and work time with Scratch, including exploring curriculum resources and examples of student-created coding projects that demonstrate innovative ways to integrate coding into content areas. Coding instruction and metacognition will be guided by experienced teachers with help and support from friendly, knowledgeable mentors.
Day 2 will include opportunities to discuss, plan, and share ways to integrate coding and computational thinking into the classroom. We will also have MakeyMakeys and Finch Robots available to explore the many ways extensions and hardware can be used to bring coding into real life.
Join us for Scratch Camp for Educators, and get ready to explore, play, plan, and share!
