3rd Grade Mini-Lesson: Scratch and MaKeyMaKey

Today we welcomed a third grade class in the Lab for a mini-lesson on Scratch and MaKeyMaKey. This year mini-lessons are being offered to each grade level 2nd-6th. Each grade will have a different topic, dealing with something we have in the Lab. For example 5th grade will be introduced to the 3D printer and 123D Design. Sessions are only 90 minutes long, and are designed to give the students a taste of what's possible.

For this group of 3rd graders, after a brief intro to Scratch, the students were put in pairs, give a few criteria (move the sprite, keyboard interaction, make a noise, and change the stage) for their design and off they went.
