Scratch Day is a global network of events that celebrates Scratch — and the young people who code and create with it. During Scratch Day, kids and adults gather to share projects and learn from one another. This year’s Scratch Day is May 9, 2015 — but you can organize a Scratch Day any day. Consider hosting a Scratch Day in your community! The new site lets you post events and search/browse for events in your community and also includes new resources for hosts (sample agendas, activity ideas, etc.).

Code.org K-5 Workshops
http://code.org/educate/k5
Code.org has developed an elementary school curriculum that allows even the youngest students to explore the limitless world of computing - at no cost for schools. The courses blend online, self-guided and self-paced tutorials with “unplugged” activities that require no computer at all. Each course consists of about 20 lessons that may be implemented as one unit or over the course of a semester. Even kindergarten-aged pre-readers can participate.
