Scratch that itch to learn about programming!

This month’s Modulator features a story written by Jim KA1ZOU about Mike (K1NPT) & Beth Cullen’s ongoing STEAM (Science Technology Engineering, Arts and Math) education initiatives here in RI.  Both Jim and Mike are actively engaged in teaching activities that involve a programming “language” called SCRATCH that is designed to hide some of the pesky details usually required to learn to program, while providing a fun learning environment targeted at kids.

As the Modulator article (you can find it here) points out, not only can the program be designed on the easy-to-use PC screen, it can also live and run on an inexpensive “micro:bit” board.
