Join us for Scratch@MIT, a playful gathering of educators, researchers, developers, and other members of the worldwide Scratch community.
We're planning a very participatory conference, with an entire day of hands-on workshops and lots of opportunities for peer-to-peer discussion and collaboration.
The conference will start with an evening reception on August 6 and continue through lunch on August 9.
Registration is now open.
Early registration (March - May): $100
Standard registration (June - August): $175
The deadline for proposals was February 15, 2014. Many thanks to everyone who submitted proposals -- we received nearly 130 proposals!
We will be reviewing these proposals over the next couple weeks and will contact applicants by March 1.
There will be also opportunities to propose topics for "unconference" sessions (participant-led gatherings) at the conference itself.
