Chrissie Learns to Code with Scratch! | JAG Cast #132

Chrissie learns to code with the help of the programming environment, Scratch! Chrissie's youngest was playing with Scratch the other day and Steve decided to check it out for himself and build a little demo Pong game because a) it's fun and b) Chrissie has never heard of pong! Together during Steve's lunch break, the PIC add a feature to the game while exploring basic programming concepts. Is Chrissie going to quit dance to become a game developer now? Tune in and find out!
