What we're about

ScratchEd Meetups are peer-designed professional learning experiences inspired by the unconference model. This means that at any given event, you decide what your learning looks like! At a Meetup, you can share, create, and learn with other educators who are also passionate about teaching with Scratch in the classroom. Anyone who is interested in connecting with fellow educators and learning more about using Scratch in educational settings is welcome to participate.

Sound intriguing? We hope to see you soon!

In our lab room, we will be experimenting with using gifs in Scratch projects to create interesting animations and video like effects. Here is a simple example of one starring my dog Codey. https://scratch.mit.edu/projects/494261290/
