Spotlight on: Grade 4 Enrichment Library #HourOfCode #resvt #cesuvt #vted




RES fourth graders writing computer code with 
Scratch programming language

Fourth graders at RES are learning to write short computer programs in their Enrichment Library classes. They are using the Scratch programming language, which was developed by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) as an engaging introduction to programming for students and other beginners. These activities are part of the nationwide Hour Of Code initiative to encourage young people to try writing or "coding" computer programs. Our scholars worked hard and helped each other as they were coding!

Here's one program written in Scratch by an RES fourth graders. Check out the others online at the RES Scratch Page!

Scratch is a free programming language! You can program with it online or download it to your computer from the Scratch Website. It's also available as a free iPad app for younger scholars.
