This Interactive Qualifying Project at the Worcester Public Library involved the incorporation of an educational experience in computer programming with a personalized and fun curriculum. Surveys of the target group, teenagers between the ages of 12 and 18, provided insight necessary to create and tailor lesson plans to their interests and needs. Members of the library staff were interviewed about advertising methods for library programs to ensure event attendance. The group designed a curriculum to teach teenagers ScratchÂ™, a computer program that introduces users to basic game programming, while encouraging creativity and self-expression. The lessons and program structure developed will constitute a major part of future ScratchÂ™ workshops at the Worcester Public Library.
