This book of explorations in Scratch is the second book in a collection of three. This book delves deeper into important principles of computer science such as generalization and modularity, and introduces some additional features of Scratch such as clones and lists. Going through this book should strengthen youth’s programming skills, help them write better programs, and provide interesting ideas for further exploration.
All three levels of Discovering Computer Science & Programming through Scratch were written using both the CSTA (Computer Science Teachers Association) K-12 Computer Science Standards and the ISTE (International Society for Technology in Education) Standards for Students as guidance.
Support for this guide is provided by the 4-H Computing Connections (CS4H) project funded by the University of Illinois Extension and Outreach Initiative and also by the Department of Energy and the Department of Homeland Security under Award Number DE-OE 0000780.
Note: only Level 1 has both Youth and Facilitator Guides; Levels 2 and 3 only have one book per level. The books are designed for the youth, and they include instructions for the facilitator.
