Zacatecas, Zac., May 19, 2024.- Next Saturday, May 25, the Zigzag Interactive Science and Technology Center will host the in-person activities that will be carried out on the occasion of Scratch Day, whose objective is to promote the creative learning of girls and boys, through projects.

Under the motto Let’s make the world smile, the Zigzag facilities, of the Zacatecan Council of Science, Technology and Innovation (Cozcyt), will become the space for building robots and masks with recycled material, designing stories, creating controls, learning coding, as well as the basic concepts of programming with the Scratch language.

This year, the workshops, talks and dynamics of Scratch Day will be held in person and virtually, simultaneously. They will take place virtually on the site: scratchdaylatam.org and in person, at Zigzag, from 10:00 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., next Saturday.

The activities are planned to facilitate physical, emotional, social, intellectual and scientific development, according to STEAM education that promotes an approach to science, technology, engineering, art and mathematics. In addition, this year, reflection on the value that each person represents in caring for the immediate environment is promoted; the family, city or town, country and planet Earth.

In the Zigzag, all activities will be carried out simultaneously and will last three hours. It is recommended that mothers, fathers and guardians review the age allowed for each activity before registering. Additionally, if attendees bring their own computer, tablet or cell phone, they are requested to previously install the required program, according to the workshop.

The in-person program consists of the workshops: Smiling through absurdities, in which girls and boys from 3 to 7 years old can participate, accompanied by an adult. There they will design an absurd story. If possible, you can bring a tablet or cell phone with Scratch Jr installed.

The Edukreativo Robot workshop is for girls and boys aged 10 and over, who will be able to build a robot with recycled materials to program it with Scratch and control it with Makey Makey. If you bring your own computer, you must install the programs: S4A, Scratch 3 and Arduino.

Meanwhile, children from 6 to 9 years old will be able to attend the Meow meow magical controls workshop, where they will experiment with materials and create their own interactive controls. The Scratch program must be installed on the computer, if it is your own.

In the workshop, Scratch:bit, for people ages 9 and up, you will learn the basics of programming using Scratch and how to integrate them with the micro:bit board to create interactive projects. Your own computer must have the Scratch program.
