Scratch in the January/February issue of Computers in Libraries

Just saw an article by Juan Romero of the Free Library of Philadelphia describing after school technology programs hosted at the library.

Scratch handouts

I've shared some random Scratch handouts on Google Docs; feel free to use them if you think they're any good. I have several additional handouts (I've been calling them "Scratchlets") to share, but here's the issue: After running/supportng a Robocode tournament last summer my Toshiba died & now needs a new motherboard (or at least needs repair to the motherboard).
