Do you want to learn to code? Or learn how to help others learn to code? Or add programmability to a new project you’re developing?

Join us to learn (or to learn more) about Scratch, a visual programming language developed by the Lifelong Kindergarten Group at Media Lab (

Scratch is used by millions of kids all around the world to create and share video games, animations, and interactive stories -- but it is also a perfect tool for adults to learn how to code in a fun and creative way.

After a short introduction, you will be free to work on your projects, explore advanced features, and ask us everything you wanted to know about Scratch but were afraid to ask!

Novice programmers, expert developers, parents, educators, and curious minds are all invited. No experience required, bring your laptop and start creating!
