Limited Capacity seats available

Scratch from MIT is a great tool for teaching basic concepts in computer programming without the need for writing code in proper syntax. This web-based animation and gaming development tool is accessible to students as young as 8, and requires no computer science background on the part of the instructor. At the Albany Public Library, a librarian and two library school interns presented a week-long full-day camp for girls that encouraged exploration and creativity alongside computer science curriculum. Learn how you can implement your own classroom or after-school video game development course with Scratch.
