Scaffolding an introduction to Scratch

In anticipation to Scratch Day we have been experimenting in the Tinkering Studio with the awesome video sensing ability that is built into Scratch 2.0.

This Thursday: Scratch Day at the Tinkering Studio

We are hosting a Scratch Day event on Thursday in honor of the 10th anniversary of Scratch. Come by the Tinkering Studio and connect Scratch with the curious objects and phenomena of the physical world.

Recent Computational Tinkering Experiments

Earlier this month, Nicole and I traveled to the MIT Media Lab for the 2016 Scratch conference. At the event, we led a workshop on scratchpaper and shared some of our recent experiments around computational tinkering.

Scratch@MIT 2016

Last week, Nicole and I traveled to MIT for the biannual scratch conference and spent a few extra days sharing ideas and prototyping with our friends at the Lifelong Kindergarten group at the Media Lab.

Developing Scratchpaper Workshop

Nicole and I will be leading a tinkering workshop at this year's Scratch Conference at the MIT Media Lab. We've been experimenting with different ways of incorporating scratch programming and computational thinking into some of our tinkering workshops. As we've been preparing for the workshop, we've focused on paper circuitry as a interesting way to investigate some of these topics.

Scratch Paper Sound Experiments

Over the past couple of weeks, Nicole and I have been preparing for a workshop for the upcoming Scratch Conference at MIT Media Lab around programming paper circuits. We started to experiment with these ideas a few months ago when we hosted a BAME meetup for a half-baked smorgasbord of programming provocations.

Sensors, LEDs and Feedback Loops

This week we've been continuing experiments inspired by the PIE sensor garden workshop using the seeed grove kit and scratch programming as entry points to the idea of computational tinkering.

Physical Programming & Sensor Garden Prototyping

Our recent experiments with ScratchX, Seeed Sensors, and programming have produced some really interesting prototypes that I think can shed some light on the process that our group goes through when working out new tinkering activities. We've all been sharing ideas with each other and it's been really interesting to see how initial investigations build on one another and lead to new pathways.
