Every year, our 6th, 7th, and 8th graders on the STAR hall get the chance to participate in a weekly electives schedule. This year, the kids will rotate each nine weeks between technology, cooking, and photography.
This year, for technology, our kiddos are going to work on computer coding. We’re starting our unit in SCRATCH, a simple block style format designed for kids ages 8-16. Today, my 8th grade buddies created their SCRATCH accounts and begin working on their very first project.
