SCRATCH 

CHALLENGE 2021

ABOUT THE CHALLENGE

For the past 7 years, Brilliant Labs and our community partners have been celebrating youth's creativity and innovative imagination throughout our region through the annual Scratch Challenge.

 

Scratch is a block-based visual programming language and online community. It was developed by the MIT Media Lab, has been translated into 70+ languages, and where it can be used to help introduce youth to coding it can be used to create some very amazing and complex projects.   

Students will have an opportunity to earn prizes and digital badges for participating!
