Div Jr Spring Break Scratch Camp

Scratch Camp, the first event as part of our new Div Jr. kid’s program, is specifically designed  for parents and kids entering grades 3rd thru 8th. Our next scratch camp will be March 18th. We anticipate that Div Jr. will not only spark an interest in web based technology, but will also encourage the children to seek more education and potential careers in web based tech.

What is Scratch

Scratch is a programming language developed by the Lifelong Kindergarten Group at the MIT Media Lab. Scratch makes it easy for children to create their own interactive stories, animations, games, music, and art — and share these creations on the web. As young people create and share Scratch projects, they learn important mathematical and computational ideas, while also learning to think creatively, reason systematically, and work collaboratively.
