What is Scratch?

Scratch is an innovative program from MIT, which helps to teach children basic programming skills. Scratch involves creating innovative games and animations in an easy and simple way, through connecting a variety of blocks. Blocks clip together like the pieces in a jigsaw, so only pieces of the right type can be attached together. This makes it even easier to learn and experiment. Using Scratch, children develop their programming skills in a fun and exciting way, without realising it.

Workshop Content:

We currently teach two different workshops revolving around Scratch. Click on the links to find out about the two workshops:

I don't know anything about programming!

It does not matter! Almost all of the volunteers for Scratch have absolutly no knowledge of programming when they start volunteering with us, and that's why we have training in term 1. As long as you can turn a computer on, you will be fine!
