  • Scratch was front and center at Albemarle County Public Schools inaugural CoderDojo Summer Academy, August 6-9. On hand to facilitate were Jon Barber, Erica Payne, Kim Wilkens and Xander Herrick, inspired and motivated from their recent time at the Scratch@MIT conference. The initial goal for the Academy was to host 50 students. Those slots were taken up in the first few minutes of registration, so the program was expanded to 200 while over 700 applied. CoderDojo is a movement that provides young people the opportunity to learn to code and Scratch provides an amazing entry point for all! -
