Scratch Workshop

Are your kids looking for something fun to do during parent-teacher conferences? We are offering a workshop for our students to combine their science fair experiments with the computer programming language SCRATCH. Our students will use Scratch to create a computer simulation of their science fair project!

What is Scratch? Scratch is a programming language and an online community where children can program and share interactive media such as stories, games, and animation with people from all over the world.

Have your student join Saturday Academy Instructor, Edwin Pilobello, at Arco Iris School to create a simulation of their Science Fair project. Students must bring their completed science fair board to the class. 

We are looking for independent learners who are interested in learning about programming. Space is limited. Preference will be given to students in grades 3 and up. Teachers will be consulted when considering applications. Childcare will not be available before or after the class.

Class will be held on both Thursday, March 13th, 10:00-2:30 AND Friday, March 14th, 9:30-12:30. There is no cost for this program, however a $20 donation is suggested to cover for materials and lunches.

Turn in the completed application (Scratch Science Registration) to the office by this Thursday, February 27th and finish your science fair project for class on Thursday, March 13th. Lunch will be provided. Questions? Email Dra. Cesar!
