Scratch Day
Meet, share, and learn with Colorado Scratch Programmers at Scratch Day 2013.

Cherry Creek School District will be hosting this free event on Saturday, May 18th, 2013 from 8:00am until 3:00pm.

What is Scratch?  Scratch, mostly intended for students ages 8-16, is an object-oriented programming language that makes it easy to create your own interactive stories, animations, games, and art, and share your creations on the web.  When sharing your creations with the Scratch online community, students are making a shift from consuming from the internet to being positive contributors of the internet.  As young students create and share Scratch projects, they learn important mathematical and computational ideas, while also learning to think creatively, reason systematically, and work collaboratively.

Location:  Cherry Creek School District – Institute of Science and Technology
                      (Overland High School /Prairie Middle School campus)
                      12500 East Jewell Avenue
                      Aurora, CO  80012

Time: Check in begins at 8:00 a.m. Program begins at 9:00 a.m.
How do I sign-up?
Students or teachers wishing to attend must register at  

Registration begins on April 11, 2013 and ends on April 19, 2013.

Do parents have to stay?
The event will be well supervised as all events at CCSD are. We do ask, however, that parents stay the entire day for all students K-5.

With access to the internet comes the availability of material that may not be of educational value or appropriate for students. While at school, CCSD has taken precautions to restrict access to inappropriate or harmful web sites. However, on the internet it is impossible to control all materials and limit all access to information that has no educational value. CCSD firmly believes that the valuable information and the interaction available on the internet far outweigh the possibility that users may procure material that is not consistent with the educational goals of CCSD.
