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 currently working at the Lamanda Park Branch Library while Central Library is closed for seismic repairs. I purchase juvenile fiction for grades 2-8, and some foreign languages. I do a lot of programs with school-age kids, including 3 regular book clubs (Windows and Mirrors, Read Around the World, and Lucha Libros), as well as writing workshops and STEAM/science programs. I also Infant/Toddler Storytimes and Preschool Storytimes, and outreach to local area preschools. 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 on creative writing activities for kids.
