Let's Play! Game Design with Scratch

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Side-scrollers. Quizzes. Mazes. Simulators. Young people are using Scratch to create and share a wide variety of interactive games. In the process, they learn important computational concepts (for example, using variables for keeping score and conditionals for making game decisions), while also developing general problem-solving skills and design capacities.

Join members of the Scratch Team at MIT Media Lab for a hands-on introduction to game design with Scratch. Participants will be introduced to Scratch, learn to create games, view examples of games created by young people and hear how educators are using Scratch for game design. No prior experience necessary.
