About the Event

If you’re a K-12 teacher looking for fun and free professional development about coding, you’re in the right place! RVA ScratchEd brings educators together to explore how coding can be a fun enhancement to any lesson, from spelling to physics. 

RVA ScratchEd meets once every two months, and is where teachers explore Scratch, a free online coding tool that allows students to create and share interactive media about the things they learn.  This is a great platform to reinforce classroom lessons and also encourages creative thinking and collaboration.

On November 20th, teachers will learn about PBS Kids ScratchJr which features everyone's faborite PBS characters and will engage students in meeting computer science standards.

A light dinner will be served, and lively group discussions are guaranteed. No coding experience is required. Just bring your laptop and your curiosity, and get ready to explore something your students will love to learn.

It all happens on November 20 from 4:45 to 6:45 p.m., at the VPM Studios.
