Learn To Program, Roanoke!

A Community Project Promoting Computer Science and STEM Education

We are actively working to create more educational opportunities for students and adults throughout the region. One of our goals is to promote STEM and Computer Science programs in the area and we believe we can help with this through these educational offerings.

Inspired by the Computer Science For All initiative, our first offering was a Google CS First Club - Game Design with Scratch.

CS First is a free program that introduces students to computer science (CS) with block-based coding using Scratch.
Scratch is a project of the Lifelong Kindergarten Group at the MIT Media Lab. It is available for free at http://scratch.mit.edu.

During this class, participants designed and programmed their own video games using code and computer science. The course teached important gaming concepts while building racing games, mazes, and other fun activites.
