This year, Scratch Day is being transformed into Scratch Week: a global, virtual celebration of Scratch! You and your students are invited to imagine, create, and share along in the Scratch online community during the week of May 17–23, 2021.

Last October, we hosted three scheduling & pathways panels for elementary, middle school, and high school teachers. Each panel included amazing computer science educators from across Iowa that shared how they are building CS programs in their buildings/districts as well as some tips and tricks! Check out our breakout room recordings.
