Scratch & Programming Club (2nd-5th)

Students in the after school Scratch Club have been using the MIT developed software, Scratch, to program their own animations and video games. Scratch is a kid-friendly tool based on color-coded programming blocks that snap together to create unique scripts, or codes. Since September, students have created interactive video games, multi-stage mazes and animations. We will also be using 2 LEGO We-Do robotics kits and the invention kit, MaKey MaKey, which uses alligator clips and USB to create interactive programs between objects and a computer. The Scratch Club is very excited to be presenting their projects at the 2013 Lesley Community of Scholars Day on March 27th.

The Kennedy-Longfellow 3P K-LO (Raspberry Pi Pack)

3PKLO_Logo

The 3P-KLO is a portable Raspberry Pi pack that comes with a Raspberry Pi Model B and all the accessories necessary to use it on any television. The name 3P-KLO stands for the “Portable Pi Pack” at the Kennedy-Longfellow Elementary School. The name and logo were designed by students at the Kennedy-Longfellow School as part of a Raspberry Pi event held in November at the school. Two winners and two runners-up for the name and logo design, along with one randomly selected winner, won their very own 3P-KLO! The name, created by a 5th grade student, is a play on the popular Star Wars character, C-3PO. The logo was designed by a 3rd grade student at the Kennedy-Longfellow School.
