The Scratch Club meet-up meets every 2nd Monday from 6:00 – 7:30pm at the Ocean Springs Library. Kids ages 8 – 12, along with a parent, will be learning about computer programming concepts while creating animations and games using Scratch.
Melissa Sundberg teaches technology at the Ocean Springs Upper Elementary school. Mrs. Sundberg is teaching the kids how to code and leading a Scratch club for interested students. She is sharing many other techy things with her elementary students, such as the Dash and Dot programmable robots. Her most recent project is developing a maker’s space in the library with lots of items to tinker, hack and build with.
Melissa Sundberg’s goal to is “push all our students beyond the ‘book box’ and to think outside of it”. The Ocean Springs School System is lucky to have a teacher so dedicated to teaching 21st century skills!
Take a peak at Mrs. Sundberg’s Donor’s Choose page. You can check out all of her interesting projects. Please consider donating to one of her worthy projects.
Our first “Adventures in Scratch” class at the Ocean Springs library was a great success! We’re looking forward to creating a video game during the next “Adventures in Scratch” class on Wednesday, February 24, from 5:30 – 7:30pm at the Ocean Springs Library.
