MIT Scratch Programming Workshop (Free)

Scratch Educator Meetup
Open to All Boston-Area Educators

Saturday, April 16
10AM – 1PM
MIT Media Lab

Create and Share Your Own Interactive Stories, Games, Music and Art

Come learn about Scratch, a free programming environment created by the Lifelong Kindergarten group at the MIT Media Lab. With Scratch, young people can create interactive stories, games, and animations. Scratch is used in schools, after-school programs, museums, and libraries to explore a range of disciplines, including math, art, english, history, and computer science.

Join us for a three-hour BYOL (Bring Your Own Laptop) meetup for educators, where we will:

  • explore the core ideas underlying Scratch
  • share strategies for integrating Scratch into classroom practice
  • develop greater familiarity with Scratch through hands-on activities
  • introduce you to ScratchEd, a companion website where educators
  • share their Scratch ideas, experiences, and resources

The meetup is open to all Boston-area educators, including those that have no previous Scratch experience. We particularly encourage educators from the same school, program, etc. to attend together as a group. Registration is limited to 40 people. The workshop is free and includes lunch.
