Immersive Coding

for and with Young Kids


This 4-week activity was an exploration of coding, craft materials, and projections with 4-5 year olds at the Boulder Journey School, CO, USA. 

Objectives: explore the possibilities of using Scratch Jr. (coding platform for young kids) in an immersive and interactive context using projectors. 

Activity Prompts: the kids' teachers invited the students to create watercolor paintings. The drawings were scanned and uploaded to Scratch Jr. The facilitators acted as "DJs" asking the kids what type of animations they wanted to add to their drawings and then making them in Scratch Jr.
