Demo of Scratch at March meeting, Gallaudet University

 Updated: 3/20/08

Hold the date: The next meeting of OLPC LC-DC will be hosted by Kevin Cole at Gallaudet University in DC.

What: Family XO Mesh Meetup

When: Saturday, March 22nd, 2008, 10 am to 1pm

Where: Gallaudet University [map], Student Union Building, Lower Level [floorplan], Flexible Room L040 and L041, Washington, D.C. 20002

At the meeting, Richard Bullington-McGuire will demonstrate the MIT Media Lab’s Scratch animation program which also runs on the XO. Richard has created a number of Scratch courses that he has taught to gradeschool children in Virginia. Richard will give a quick overview of the class he’s teaching, show some of the classroom materials, explain how he got the seminar series started, and show what some of the projects students have done. He’ll also report on the alpha implementation of Scratch on the XO, with a quick explanation of what works and what doesn’t.

Here’s a screenshot of one of Richard’s student projects, a capture the flag game:
