Scratch and the learning curve...


The girls have started to get into the programming and they are beginning to learn some concepts.  Variables are starting to become clearer.  The idea of storing everything they need, even the wrong answer, has them boggled and overwhelmed.  The scratch environment of finding how to get items to work together is also a challenge.  Working together we have found out how to do some of the items.  We still can't get a sprite to say multiple integers.  The girls want to have their problem appear on the stage and getting that has been a challenge.  It is nice to see them interact when one group has found out how to do something they are willing to share with one another.
