Connecting the world to Scratch
Scratch.mit.edu is a wonderful free visual programming tool for making animations, games and stories. You can also connect it to touch pads, motors, sensors, Twitter feeds, and gesture controllers with experimental ScratchX extensions.

We will look at several physical devices which can be connected to Scratch projects such as MakeyMakey, Lego, Arduino, and possibly more.

The workshop will feature demonstrations and hands-on discovery with musical instruments, interactive posters and drawing robots. Explore how Scratch and its extensions can be used to teach coding in a range of curriculum areas including science, music and art.

Suitable for teachers of years 3 - 10.
