Computer Programming Science Fair Project

LEGOMAN loves video games, just like most kids. This year he decided to do his science fair project using a free downloadable software called Scratch.  Scratch is designed with kids in mind, to make computer programming easier. 

We got our idea from the Science Buddies website and dove into a bunch of tutorials to learn how to use Scratch. I am happy to report that LEGOMAN took home a first place trophy in his homeschool science fair.

Here is a photo of his science board.

Listed below are two of our favorite tutorials for Scratch.

I hope your kids enjoy learning how to program their own video games.  Let me know how it works out for you.

Blessings!
