We release activities bi-weekly— some online, some offline, of varying levels of difficulty. Each activity features a woman in tech who pioneered innovative technology.
Around the world we take time on April 22 to celebrate Earth Day and reflect on the beauty and wonder of our planet! This year, after consulting with over 190 countries, the Earth Day Network has declared that the theme for Earth Day 2021 is “Restore Our Earth”. With this focus, scientists, businesses and governments are looking towards future technologies that can restore our ecosystems, wildlife populations, and oceans around the globe. In this activity, we will stand up for mother nature by creating a Public Service Announcement, or PSA, to teach others about an environmental issue and provide potential solutions as part of the #RestoreOurEarth campaign. In this activity, you will learn how to plan and program a PSA for your selected audience with Scratch. You will consider what makes a PSA impactful and choose an environmental issue that’s important to you.
