The Digital Arts Experience is hosting a Scratch Day event on May 9th from 12:30 to 2pm!
But what is this day all about? Scratch Day is a global event that is held on the same day, May 9th, but is hosted in many different communities around the world. Teachers, parents, and students gather at their nearest Scratch Day location to not just celebrate the release of Scratch, but all of the creative projects made.
Scratch is a free programming language where anyone can create their own artwork, games, and animations through the simplified basics of computer programming. The world of Scratch is a fun and entertaining way to educate youth about math and science while integrating art, and music.
We are hosting a Game-Off, where participants will be challenged to create their own original game built in Scratch within a time frame. Whoever programs the most creative and original game will take home a 3D printed prize. We are so excited and can’t wait to see what everyone will make!
