Scratch is a free, block-based programming environment that is perfect for introducing code to the classroom and a great
educational tool for building fun and creative projects like video games, animations, digital art and more. In this workshop
we’ll explore a variety of coding concepts and practices, while experiencing example Scratch lessons and becoming more
familiar with the tool. Some (free!) resources to help you get started with using Scratch in the classroom will be provided.

Kim is a lifetime learner who always wants to know the how and the why. Sheï¿½s a graphic designer by trade, artistic by nature and an instructor by fate. As an ex-figure skater, sheï¿½ll always be a dedicated coach for both kids and adults - on and off the ice. Watching someoneï¿½s eyes light up as they figure out they are capable of overcoming challenging obstacles is one of the most rewarding things in Kimï¿½s life.
