|A MINK WiC Pre-Conference Workshop:
Scratch Programming for Community College Students
Scratch is a free computer programming language from MIT Media Labs designed for students ages 8 and through college students that lets them create stories, animation, games, music, and art. Scratch is a powerful way to introduce programming in college-level computer science classes for both majors and non-majors. The ease with which interactive graphical programs can be created in Scratch, combined with its freedom from syntax errors and fluid development process, results in high levels of student engagement and motivation. Come and join us to learn Scratch. Be sure to bring a USB drive to save your creations! Workshop space is limited to 20 community college students on a first-come-first-serve basis.
