BOONEVILLE, Miss. – Area middle school students will be starting with “Scratch” in Northeast Mississippi Community College’s latest summer camp that looks to tap into a middle school student’s need for technology.

Northeast computer science instructor Tom Hill will introduce students to a one-day Computer “Scratch” Camp on Tuesday, July 16 from 8:45 a.m. until 2:30 p.m.

Scratch is a unique computer programming language developed by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) Media Lab Lifelong Kindergarten research group that allows users to easily create interactive stories, games and animations.

With Scratch, users can also share their creations online with others.

Northeast offered an initial Scratch camp in June 2012 to a capacity turnout.

Seating is limited to 24 so pre-registration is encouraged.

Class will meet in McCoy Hall on the Northeast Booneville campus and lunch will be provided.

Cost for the one-day computer camp is $30.
