Moffett After-School Programs


We are excited to offer a new opportunity for 4th and 5th grade students!


 Scratch Computer Programming

                  Learn to Code, Code to Learn


This after-school S.T.E.M program provides an introduction to creative computing with MIT’s Scratch programming tool, using a design-based learning approach.


Creative computing supports the development of personal connections to computing by drawing upon creativity, imagination, and interests.


Creative computing supports young people’s development as computational thinkers – individuals who can draw on computational concepts, practices, and perspectives in all aspects of their lives across disciplines and contexts.
