About the workshop

In this workshop families will learn how to use Scratch and continue this creativity at home.

Scratch is fun and accessible for budding computer scientists. A free visual programming language, Scratch was developed to help simplify the process of creating and programming animations, games, music, interactive stories and more. Using a system of colour coding for the program's different building blocks, the code becomes like puzzle pieces. Designed especially for ages 8 to 16, it can be used by people of all ages.

The Lifelong Kindergarten group at the MIT Media Lab designed and maintain Scratch. This workshop contains visual programming and digital art and production.
