Siblings teach ’Scratch’ at Deltaville Library

image
Teenage wiz-kids Lucas and Lila Casati taught the basics of “Scratch,” a beginner’s coding language developed at MIT, on August 1 at the Deltaville Branch of the Middlesex Public Library.

Lucas and Lila Casati visit Deltaville every summer. This summer they signed up to teach a two-day coding class at the Deltaville Library to kids ages 9-13. Kids can access the site “scratch.mit.edu” using laptops provided by the library and follow the demonstration presented by Lucas and Lila until they are comfortable to venture on their own. Kids can design their own virtual pet, which moves and makes sounds, or create their own game.

The class was on August 1 and served as a demo for the Southside Sentinel. The class was cancelled on August 8 due to lack of enrollment. If you are looking for something fun and easy to learn, please consult the Deltaville Library at 776-7362 on when Lucas and Lila will return.
