    We pulled off the workshops with positive reviews from the attendees and Melrose staff. It was great working with the Melrose Staff. Fantastic support for the event was given from Aiden and Kimberly Voorheis, Leslie Daniels, Ade Ogunniyi and Ann Collins. Thanks to all attendees and those who made this event a success!

    Mac, I am happy to help. Let me know how. I have taught Scratch to both students and teachers.

      So, I am still available to help. Do you have an idea at this in what capacity I might be able to provide my assistance.

      Leslie, I'm doing a quick training session for the melrose staff and volunteers at 9 p.m. You could show for that and/or assist with any of the workshops. The 2 p.m. Scratch for teachers would be a good match as well to help with. Let me know what times are good for you.

      Maribeth, that could work but depends on the Melrose wireless. I'm not sure how solid the wireless is.

    Hey Mac, I can't commit 100% but I put it on my calendar. I just taught Scratch about a month and a half ago to 7th and 8th graders in Melbourne and it went really well - see my blog post for details: http://nathanselikoff.com/2316/events/teaching-artist-residency-stone-middle-school

      Nathan, I've had a few people point me to the article already... You did some amazing work and it appears to have been very effective! I envy those students! I'm sure it was a lot of work on your part, but worth every bit. I'm hoping that you'll be able to make it out on Scratch Day. I'm also running a Scratch workshop for the Melrose staff prior to Scratch Day. I'll keep you posted.
