The consensus is in! Splitting the Scratch room is making sense to parents, kids, and mentors, so we’re going to keep at it for a while. To prevent confusion between the “Beginner” curriculum (code.org) and the “beginner” Scratch room, we’re calling it “Basic” Scratch.
Question of the Month: When Was Your Child Ready to Move Up?
We want to create a page on the site for new parents to better help them not only choose what to sign their child up for, but also to understand when it’s time to move them up. We’re asking parents to answer this questrion: “when did you know it was time for your child to move up to a more difficult room?”
Please send your answer to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We’re hoping to ask a new question each month to help us understand your needs better and serve you better. While we’re hard at work thinking up the right questions to ask, there might be one you’d love us to ask that’s not occurring to us. Please feel free to mail us a question suggestion.
Workshop and Project Ideas Wanted
The Python class ends this month and we’re looking for a new workshop to start March 12th. We also need to program all 4 rooms for this year’s Robotics Day in July. If you have an idea for a multi-week workshop you’d like to teach or a 1-hour project you could lead on Robotics Day, please mail Greg with your idea.
