Looking for ways to make your upper elementary or middle school science curriculum more exciting and innovative? Whether you are a general classroom teacher or a STEM specialist, this workshop will allow you to experience and explore how student-created computer animations can bring new life to your current units of study. This workshop will focus on the concepts of motion and speed while using the Scratch programming language to bring a story-telling component to the science classroom. During the workshop, we will observe a race in real time and then animate it using Scratch. See how computing can deepen student thinking. Everyone is welcome – even if you don’t know a thing about Scratch!

Led by Juliette Guarino Berg, Kate Macaulay and Greg Benedis-Grab
