This curriculum introduces young people to five fundamental principles of computer programming, providing a foundation for exploring and creating. Scratch is a project of the Lifelong Kindergarten Group at the MIT Media Lab. Each youth in a group should have his/her own guidebook.
In Discovering Computer Science & Programming through Scratch, youth interact with a series of tutorials and challenges within the Scratch environment. Young people can work on the activities individually, with partners, or in a guided instructional setting. Grades 6-8. This set includes one youth guide and one facilitator guide.
As of August 2016, pages 44 and 45 in the Youth Guide have been updated. Please download the revised pages here.
