We encourage you to use as much or as little of the guide as you like, to design new activities, and to remix the included activities. No matter your prior experience or expertise, we think of every educator as a co-designer of the Creative Computing experience. We would love to learn about what you’re doing, so we encourage you to document and share your experiences with us and with other educators via the ScratchEd community at
