One of the best way to get young kids started on programming is with Scratch, the MIT-developed programming environment that lets them script sprites and otherwise dip their little toes into machine logic. In July, educators, developers and others interested in introducing kids to programming will gather in Boston for Scratch@MIT to:

  • share stories of how Scratch is being used in homes, classrooms, and community centers
  • participate in hands-on workshops, to learn new Scratch techniques and strategies
  • discuss research examining how and what kids learn with Scratch
  • explore future directions for Scratch with members of the MIT Scratch Team
