Scratch Computer Programming at CGA

Scratch Computer Programing for 4-8th grade students

What is Scratch Programming?

Scratch is a program from MIT where you can program your own interactive stories, games and animation- and share your creations with other in the online community. Scratch helps young people learn to think creatively, reason systematically, and work collaboratively- essential skills for life in the 21st century.

The ability to code computer programs is an important part of literacy in today’s society. When students learn to code in Scratch, they learn important strategies for solving problems, designing projects and communication.
