It’s that time of year again to do Scratch Day! Returning to the Arlington Career Center on Saturday, May 22nd, 2010, our kid-friendly theme this year is “Scratch Circus.” We plan to have three activities running simultaneously during the afternoon. Like last year’s event, there will be much learning, fun and prizes!
Scratch is a free programming language developed by the Lifelong Kindergarten Group at the MIT Media Lab that makes it easy to create your own interactive stories, animations, games, music, and art — and share your creations on the web.
More details will be posted next month, but this coming Saturday at 1pm, we’ll have an informal planning meeting at the Arlington Career instead of a programmed meeting. If you want to participate in planning Scratch Day in any way, please stop by before 2pm. We’ll be up the right-hand staircase in room 208. If you need help with your OLPC XO or have a related question, we’ll be happy to help.
**Special Planning Meeting for Scratch Day**
When: Saturday, April 17th, 2010, 1 pm to 3 pm (please arrive before 2pm)
Arlington Career Center, Room 208
