Johnston Public Library and YouthCode Team Up for Scratch Day

03/13/2018 4:11 PM | Tim Sieber (Administrator)

Scratch Day is a global network of events to celebrate the block-based programming language, Scratch. This year the Johnston Public Library and YouthCode are partnering together to host a free Scratch Day for central Iowa families at the Johnston Public Library between 1:30 and 4:00pm on Saturday, May 12, 2018. 

Scratch Day events bring together all kinds of people from the Scratch community to share projects, learn together and welcome newcomers. Last year, there were more than 1000 events around the world!

This year's activities at the Johnston Public Library will include hands-on projects for new and experienced Scratchers as well as fun, interactive demonstrations of various technologies that can be used with Scratch. No registration is required so come any time for a fun learning adventure with Scratch! Prizes and snacks will be available while supplies last.

Do you have questions or want to volunteer at this year's Scratch Day? Contact Jessica at the Johnston Public Library or Tim with YouthCode.

Scratch is a project of the Lifelong Kindergarten Group at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology Media Lab. 

YouthCode is a program of Impacting The Next Generation Project, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.
