Students use Scratch to bring the Purim story to life

Using Scratch, a block-based programming language developed at MIT, Grade 6 students brought the Purim story to life in their Tanakh class with their teacher, Lianne Gross. Some students chose to update the characters to reflect present day sensibilities, imagining, for example, Vashti having Instagram followers. As part of our Purim festivities, the entire Upper School watched a video production of the Scratch projects, with voice-over by the Grade 6 students.
