From Wroclaw to Rio de Janeiro, Scratch Day festivities were a success!

By Margaux Gillebert, EU Code Week Team

Celebration of Scratch Day took place in Portugal, Poland, Italy, North Macedonia, Turkey, Romania, Brazil, and many other places. Children had a great time playing with Scratch while learning some key competences thanks to the activities developed by dedicated teachers.

 

 

This special day was celebrated across countries in many different ways, with a great variety of topics and types of activities. In Portugal and Brazil, Scratch day was used as an opportunity to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the World Wide Web and the 50th anniversary of the first step on the moon, respectively. Creativity and Scratch were mixed to
create flowers, dancing videos or games through coding in Romania and North Macedonia. And in Turkey, amongst others, a mix of on- and offline activities were used linked to an interactive screen. Using Scratch in EU Code Week activities is a powerful and creative tool to let the children’s creativity blossom, add some fun to classrooms while providing students with practical competencies.

 

 

Scratch day is one of the many opportunities to get involved in EU Code Week throughout the year. Congratulations to all the Leading Teachers and teachers for their involvement in the EU Code Week and for the activities created around Scratch Day 2019!
