Happy #ScratchWeek 2021!

May 19, 2021

Yeah! It is Scratch Week!

Every day this week, keep an eye on the Scratch homepage, where they will be featuring a new themed studio every day.

Thursday's theme is "Invent an Instrument!" We love this studio collection and we want to see your Makey Makey instrument inventions! With Makey Makey and Scratch, almost anything can be an instrument! For more inspiration, check out these amazing creations by Dori Friedman's students.  Share your student work on social for a chance to be highlighted on our next blog post!
