Upcoming Events

Scratch & Scratch Jr. workshops

Coming again in spring 2020.

Scratch is a free program that can be downloaded or used online to create endless imaginative stories, games, presentations, and simulations.

Scratch Jr. is a free app that allows young children (ages 5-7) to program their own interactive stories and games. In this creative environment, they learn to solve problems, design projects, and express themselves on a computer.

BootUp PD is coming to Maryland to help build sustainable programs based on project-based, integrated content. Contact MCCE for more information if your district is interested.

PBS KIDS ScratchJr is a free tablet app available in both English and Spanish that incorporates PBS KIDS media properties. Kids solve problems, design projects, and express themselves creatively using technology. With PBS KIDS ScratchJr, kids aren’t just learning to code, they are coding to learn.
