About the Art and Scratch Project Exhibition

  • The Wind River Computer Science Elementary Collaborative is developing computer science curriculum that is culturally relevant. Art submissions will be incorporated in this curriculum.
  • Students who have worked in Scratch can also submit Scratch projects they wish to share with their communities.
  • One goal of the exhibition is to inspire students across the Wind River Reservation to submit projects that explore the connection, history, and culture of the Northern Arapaho and Eastern Shoshone peoples.
  • A second goal of the exhibition is to inspire students to share their computer science learning with the Wind River community.
  • All student artists and programmers will receive a certificate and be credited for their submissions. They will also receive a small gift card.
  • Participating teachers will receive an honorarium up to $200.
