Scratch 101, Friday August 1

We made more great Scratch projects last Friday as ten kids between the ages of 10-18 came to the library to learn how to create an interactive animated “talk show.”  They learned programming concepts and created sequences of events that a computer could execute so that it looked like characters were naturally talking with each other.   They also had fun coming up with silly conversations and animated facial expressions to make their talk shows more comedic.

I'm a youth services librarian working in the Children's Room at the Pasadena Central Library. I purchase juvenile nonfiction books for all sites, juvenile Spanish books for all sites, and juvenile DVDs for the Central Library. I do a lot of programs with school-age kids, including Lucha Libros, writing workshops, STEAM Careers in Pasadena, and other STEAM/science programs. I teach 1-2 sessions of Infant/Toddler Storytime each year. I love what I do, working with kids of all ages to inspire them to learn and use their curiosity and imaginations. Outside of my work at the library, I am also the author of a book, 36 Workshops to Get Kids Writing: From Aliens to Zebras.
