Philly.NET invites you to bring your children to try Scratch, the interactive programming language from MIT. Many developers of all ages use Scratch to create interactive stories and games. It is a great tool to learn the basic concepts of programming in a visual and fun way.
Our presenter Ben is going to teach other kids how to get started with this fun environment.
(Please notice there are multiple events at the same location. Be sure to RSVP for the event you want to attend)
This is a Hands-On Lab (not a presentation), so bring a laptop (Windows and Mac laptops are supported). You can do everything in a web browser at https://scratch.mit.edu. You can also download a separate client to work offline.
It is not required to create a Scratch account for you or your child before the lab. However, to “save” your work in the cloud and share with the community, you will want to do so.
• You must bring a laptop (Windows or Mac laptops are okay)
• No previous experience is required with Scratch or programming!
• MIT believes Scratch is perfect for kids 8 to 16. We’ve younger children succeed as well.
