Students in the South Fayette Township School District are learning Scratch from a very young age. “Second graders are learning to be computer scientists and programmers,” explains Aileen Owens, director of technology and innovation for the South Fayette School District.
“We have a computational thinking K-12 strand that we’ve built, and Scratch is a foundation, the scaffolding of learning,” Aileen says.
Here I am interacting with some of the South Fayette students. I’m the outreach coordinator for this project funded by the Grable Foundation. It’s amazing to see kids in grades 2-12 actively engaged in computational thinking projects.
