Demo of Scratch at March meeting, Gallaudet University
What: Family XO Mesh Meetup
When: Saturday, March 22nd, 2008, 10 am to 1pm
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:

In addition to Richard’s presentation, we’ll be offering technical support and an opportunity to mesh with other XOs.
