April 2018 – Technology Workshops

This year we are excited to start a special technology-focused program for our middle-school students.   We started the year with an introduction to computer programming using SCRATCH – a graphically based system created at MIT for teaching basic concepts and enabling students to create their own interactive games, stories, and projects quickly and easily.   One of our objectives with this program is to move “beyond the screen” and have students use technology to interact with the real world by introducing hands-on experiences with 3D printing (including printers in the classroom) and electronics and Arduino programmable circuit boards.
