3-hour workshop: Scratch 3.0, February 9, 2019

KCI is pleased to announce the next Computer Science Workshop in the series. Join us for a fun 3 hour coding workshop on the NEW Scratch 3.0--a complete new re-write of MIT's Scratch, a block based coding language, that now works on tablets and phones.

Understand how to use the new Amazon Web services text to speech extension, the Google language translation extension, and the new Vector graphics editor.  Participants will also learn fundamental coding concepts like manipulating strings and lists and how to define your own blocks in the new Scratch 3.0.
  • For educators familiar with Scratch, this is the perfect workshop to take your coding skills to the next level and make the most of the new Scratch 3.0 features.
  • For those less familiar with Scratch, this is your time to come fall in love with coding in Scratch.

All levels of coding experience, and all grade level educators welcome. The workshop will include a networking lunch with other educators interested in computer science.

Thanks to the generous funding from Microsoft, the workshop AND lunch is available to Bay Area educators for a $25 registration fee.
