Scratch@MIT 2016

Join us for the Scratch@MIT conference, 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.

Interested in proposing a session?

We invite four types of proposals:

Poster/demonstration (90 minutes)

Show off your project in an exhibition setting, alongside other presenters. You will be provided with display space for a poster and table space for acomputer or handouts.

Hands-on workshop (90 minutes)

Engage participants in hands-on activities, highlighting new ways of creating and collaborating with Scratch.

Interactive panel (60 minutes)

Discuss a Scratch-related topic in a panel with three or more people. Your proposal should describe how you will engage the audience during the session.

Ignite talk (5 minutes)

Share what you've been doing in a short, lively presentation.
