Do parents have to stay?
The event will be well supervised as all events at CCSD are. We do ask, however, that parents stay the entire day for all students K-5.
What is Scratch?  Scratch, mostly intended for students ages 5-16, is an object-oriented programming language that makes it easy to create your own interactive stories, animations, games, and art, and share your creations on the web.  When sharing your creations with the Scratch online community, students are making a shift from consuming from the internet to being positive contributors of the internet.  As young students create and share Scratch projects, they learn important mathematical and computational ideas, while also learning to think creatively, reason systematically, and work collaboratively. We will also have classes on MaKey MaKey and Lego WeDo
