Original Author:  Shajith Kumar Mukundan Content Teaser A tutorial for drawing a multi-color flower with Scratch Hi Every One!

I am new to ScratchEd and this is my first post. Happy to be part of a revolution that is changing the way kids learn computer science. I got to learn Scratch (and computer programming) about a year back and there is no looking back. I really love it!

Here is a tutorial that I designed to teach Scratch to middle school students in Chenai, India. It is a bit detailed as my intention was to teach programming concepts using the tutorial in the absense of a live teacher.

​Scratch-n-sketch: My African Maker Story

19 december 2015 18:22
Content Teaser Scratch-n-Sketch is a kit that provides a playful exploration and experimentation mechanism of learning electronics and how to code using scratch.
Being a maker or an educator, you are always finding a new way of making things easier for learning how to code and physical computing. Myself am a maker passionate about teaching kids/makers/students new technology but being in a developing world getting the right resources to teach coding and physical computing is a hard task and so frustrating despite having hundreds of kits out there. The low literacy in basic computing skills and slow internet connection makes things even worse.
