Scratch Contest, part deux

Voting is now open in WPL's Scratch contest. You guys can vote, too! See what the kids did here:

So...we had three real entries and one "exhibition" entry that was made by a kid and his dad (but the dad did all the programming). I would've liked more, but hey, you have to start somewhere.

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. Although his main focus is on the LEGO robotics programs offered at the library, he also mentions FLP's Scratch and PicoCrickets offerings. Based upon my reading of the article, it's not very clear who is staffing these programs: they seem to rely a great deal upon Penn undergraduates to run the workshops.
