Scratch is a website for eight to sixteen year olds who want to build games, interactive stories and animations through code blocks. During these self-directed weekly sessions, kids will learn technical skills and help each other work on projects. Attendees who are able to are strongly encouraged to bring their own laptop with Wi-Fi capabilities. Others are encouraged to arrive early to claim one of the limited number of computers available on a first-come first-served basis. An email address is also needed to create an account.
