Do you have students who are creative and like problem-solving? Programming is a great way to combine storytelling and problem solving, especially when using Scratch.
The LigerBots, Newton’s award-winning FIRST robotics team, will be hosting a Scratch hackathon for students grades 4-8 on April 3, 2021, from 1 pm-5 pm. Programmers of all levels can compete in teams of 2-4 to code the best animation in Scratch. There will be workshops in the first half of the event and prizes for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place.
