Creating a curriculum for young students

Tue Jan 30, 2018 4:12 pm

Hello,
I am involved with a group to create a curriculum for young girls as part of a STEM program. I am researching projects that will be grouped by ages:
6-8yo
8-10yo
10-12yo

I was thinking that we would use Scratch for visual programming. The kids will have one week to complete their project. I am hoping to actually have them be able to create three projects during the week. I am looking for any help with sample projects that would be fitting for girls in age brackets above. Any resources that you can direct me to? Any assistance would be much appreciated.
Thanks!!

The Code Club Scratch projects are pretty good and supported by the Raspberry Pi Foundation. They work best on a PC with an internet connection. I teach kids from 7 to 12 with those.
