MiCSTA 2016 April Meeting
MiCSTA’s April meeting is Tuesday, April 26 at Athens High School in Troy at 5:30pm. We plan to contribute to a take-out meal as part of the meeting.
Barry Webster will share parts of Scratch that Coding Itch, a pre-conference workshop for MACUL2016, with additional materials available. If you wish to bring your own computer and install the Scratch Offline Editor prior to the meeting, there are directions in the email to members and on the Scratch website (scroll to the bottom of the page, click on Offline Editor).
We’ll check out the latest released sample exam questions for AP CS Principles. And, any other topic relevant to MicSTA is fair game. We hope to see you there.
