Scratch is a new, open source programming language that makes it easy to create your own interactive stories, animations, games, music, and art -- and share your creations on the Web. Scratch is often described as a tool to teach kids how to program. This workshop will introduce Scratch to programmers and non-programmers alike.
Location: Gold Room
Audience level: Novice
Even if you've never even sewn a button, you can learn to make cool things with microcontrollers. Microcontrollers can do so many things: turn off TVs in public places, trip out to your brain waves, move objects, play games -- you can make microcontrollers do it all. It's easy, it's fun, it's where it's at!
