Students used a program called “Scratch” to learn how to animate and make games!
How did students prepare? View samples in the Project Gallery on a variety of subjects-created by other kids: http://scratch.mit.edu/tags/view/education
How to get involved? Communicate your interest in creating an opportunity by talking to your teacher & Mrs. Wieczorek. Turn in a signed permission slip with a description telling what you hope to learn, what experience you may already have and how you may benefit from this opportunity.

Tynker is a new tool that is a replica of Scratch.
Since Tynker is linked to our Google Apps Accounts and is online, students can access and start Tynkering from home.
For anyone interested to guide themselves through Tynker, see the directions below.
