Teaching Kids to Code with Scratch- Free Training

If you’ve ever wanted to get involved with The Div, now’s your chance! Join us on Saturday, April 16th from 9:00 AM – 1:00 PM for a free Scratch training led by experienced educator, Dr. Wesley Fryer. We’ll be walking through an overview of the Scratch program and how it helps kids learn to code, as well as providing the activities and tools to facilitate a Scratch Camp.

What is Scratch?

Scratch is a visual programming language developed at MIT that allows kids to develop a range of problem solving that will help them when they move on to real-world programming. Despite its simple interface, it allows users to create complex animations and games, and learn many fundamental coding concepts.

Why are we doing this?

The Div relies on community support to advance our mission to bring computer science learning opportunities to kids in Oklahoma. We are looking for teachers, parents and capable practitioners who work in the tech industry to help us lead kids camps.

This workshop is a great opportunity to get involved with The Div, or just learn a little more about using Scratch on your own, in the classroom or with your children at home. If you have questions about registration or about The Div, contact mckalyn@thediv.org.
