Scratch for Teens

Scratch is a free program created by MIT to teach teenagers and young people the basics of computer coding. You can create your own interactive, animated stories and games, and get feedback from other members of the Scratch community.

Instructive and adorable.

Ten teens (say THAT three times fast!) can come to the Bluebonnet Regional Branch on Thursday, October 6th, from 3-5 PM, where the friendly neighborhood librarians will have laptops and the program set up for you to test drive.

You can complete the required registration by calling the Bluebonnet Regional Library at 763-2270.

And after you’ve done that, and it’s whetted your appetite for programming languages, get yourself signed up with a Treehouse account and learn all kinds of code! (You should also check out Lynda.)

Technology advances at an exponential rate. Grab the expanding end of that growth curve and hang on – and with programs like Scratch, have fun doing it!
