An evening of Scratch with the Sapphire Foundation

Submitted by 2piCarsten on May 2, 2014

Last Tuesday the CoWS was host to the first meeting of this year's Sapphire Foundation students and parents. To celebrate the occasion and technology, Karl was invited to lead another workshop about programming in Scratch. It was a fun and successful evening and one of the students said afterwards: "I learned more about programming in these 2 hours than in one whole term of computing at school."

Kids Programming Night was a Great Success!

Submitted by 2piCarsten on April 9, 2014

We couldn't believe our eyes when we saw that there were 12 young people sitting here and soaking up Karl's introduction to Scratch programming! After Karl's demo there was some time to hack together some quick experiments and start on more interesting games.

Later in the evening Aurin showed how he navigates the multitude of radial menus to create and change games in Kodu, a really eye opening experience to some of us old geezers, but also very interesting to the kids. Karl commented that "Kodu is like Scratch on steroids!"
