Catching the Code Bug with ScratchProject led by INTERalliance of Greater Cincinnati
About the project.
Catching the Code Bug with Scratch will create a three-day, in-person summer camp for 50 students ages 7-11 in Brown County, Ohio. Using marshmallows, straws, LEGOs, sun butter & jelly, High School Mentors and INTERalliance Staffers will expose students to algorithms, IT History, Engineering, Iteration, & Scratch Software Development. Students do not need to have any prior knowledge and laptops will be provided for the duration of the camp. Meals and snacks provided.
FAO staff comments.
STEM is important for all children, especially those in Appalachian Ohio, where educational organizations like INTERalliance have access to nine times fewer philanthropic resources compared to the rest of the state. Support for this project would allow children who may not otherwise have the opportunity, a hands on experience with STEM education.
