The 3rd Annual Teachers College Scratch Day will take place on December 14, 2019. Faculty and students from the Communication, Media, & Learning Technologies Design Program organize and run the event.

Scratch is a free block-based visual programming language designed for children ages 8-16. When children learn Scratch, they not only learn how to code; they also practice collaborative problem solving, effective communication practices, and visual design. Scratch is available in 40+ languages and used in schools, community-based organizations, and homes in more than 150 countries. People of all ages can learn Scratch.

TC’s Scratch Day, done in collaboration with the Logo Foundation, is a community celebration of interactive learning through coding. All teachers and their students, parents and their children are welcome!

Workshop proposals from students and teachers are still being accepted through October 25, 2019. Be sure to read the workshop guidelines before you submit your proposal.
