Learn how to code! Scratch Jr is an introductory programming language that enables K–2 students to create interactive stories and games using drag and drop programming blocks to make characters move, jump, dance, and sing. Students see their characters come to life! Reading optional. Coding is equivalent to learning a new language and is just like riding a bike—it is best to start early. Younger students improve computer skills and develop fluidity in their thinking and storytelling using code.

Introduction to 3D Printing provides the skills a student needs to get into the wonderful world of design, 3D modeling, and CAD. We use accessible software specifically designed for education (TinkerCAD and Morphi) to explore mathematical concepts, computer skills, and physical manufacturing. Students learn about how the process works and the various materials available for 3D printing. A simple change in design, materials, or printer settings could help save money and reduce your ecological footprint.
