“Young programmers” is a locally- funded research project, which is focused on the investigation of middle school students computational thinking, environmental literacy and their inter- relationships. As part of this project, the “Young programmers” program, which is addressed to middle school students, has been developed. The program aims to introduce students in computational thinking through the Scratch programming application. Employing an exploratory research design, the overall goal of the project is to investigate the potential contribution of new technologies for programming and producing digital stories on students’ computational and creative thinking as well as on the raise of students’ awareness on environmental issues (e.g. waste management).
