Coding Program Brings Families Together

← Back Print This Article

This spring, 20 Washington families came back to school for four evenings of learning together.

 
Washington was one of three Bethel Park elementary schools to partner with WQED to offer the Family Creative Learning Series which focused on learning how to create presentations on an iPad using the PBS Scratch Jr. coding program.
 
Families gathered in the Washington cafeteria for dinner together before playing some fun trivia games and then learning how to create presentations that incorporated motion, animation, sound, voice overs and music.
 
After four weeks, the students were able to share their presentations with all of the participating families. The final projects were entertaining!
