Along with a delivery officer and PowerPoint presentations, we have 15 laptops available with the Scratch software pre-installed.
We require a large display screen/projector that we can use for the PowerPoints.
We recommend these exercises be done in a computer room with at least one computer between two learners. We can supply laptops if such facilities are unavailable.
These sessions are a minimum of 60 minutes.
As we tend to tune the content according to your project goals, more than one session may be necessary.
As this program uses simple block programming, we offer these to year 4-9 (ages 8-13).
For those aged 5-7, we can offer a simplified version of these workshops using Scratch Jr.

These workshops can be stand-alone or part of a series to support a project.
A large presentation screen or projector with Teams or Zoom installed for video conferencing.
Enough computers for at least one between two learners, with internet access to share Scratch files for remote assistance.
We also have a Scratch Animation Workbook available.
