Welcome to Grade 6

Computer Science using Scratch and MIT App Inventor

  • The 8th grade will continue to work with Scratch and students will be introduced to MIT APP Inventor. 

     

    • Scratch: 

      With Scratch, students can program their own interactive stories, games, and animations — and share their creations with others in the online community.

      Scratch helps students learn to think creatively, reason systematically, and work collaboratively — essential skills for life in the 21st century.

    • MIT App Inventor:  is an intuitive, visual programming environment that allows everyone – even children – to build fully functional apps for smartphones and tablets. Those new to MIT App Inventor can have a simple first app up and running in less than 30 minutes. And what's more, our blocks-based tool facilitates the creation of complex, high-impact apps in significantly less time than traditional programming environments.
