WHAT WE OFFER
AFTER-SCHOOL ENRICHMENT CLASSES
We provide after-school coding classes at ten schools in Denver serving children in grades 1-5. Our coding classes are offered at three private schools (Colorado Academy, St. Mary’s Academy, and Stanley British Primary School), and at seven Denver Public Schools (Bill Roberts, Bromwell, Brown, Carson, Polaris at Ebert, and Steck).

HOW WE WORK
Each student works with a personal computer supplied by our partner schools. Students create their own Scratch projects with one-on-one support from Myers Learning teachers. Our teachers briefly show sample projects and techniques on an LCD projector, and then circulate around the classroom supporting students in developing their own unique projects which may draw on these techniques. Students have home access to ScratchPad a launchpad into Scratch, developed by Myers Learning, that includes Scratch activities, challenges, and resources.
In our after-school enrichment programs and summer camps, we work to build powerful learning communities in which each student is both a learner and a teacher. Students work collaboratively and use a projector to demo their projects to the class. When sharing their work, students receive feedback from their peers about what their peers like about their projects and what suggestions their peers have for making their projects even better. More experienced students serve as mentors to newer students. Our students experience the joy of creative work, receiving one-on-one support, and mentoring others.
Myers Learning programs are described by participants as "hard fun." Our programs inspire students to learn Scratch and to develop Scratch projects at school and at home. Students share projects with their parents, teachers, siblings, and friends — and they share their work on the web with students throughout the world through the Scratch website.
