ScratchJr was developed collaboratively for children ages 5-7 by MIT's Lifelong Kindergarten Group, Tufts' DevTech Research Group, and the Playful Invention Company. Using the same general programming principles as Scratch, ScratchJr allows children to create interactive stories and games by snapping together simplified icon-based programming blocks. This workshop will provide an overview and history of ScratchJr as well as hands-on activities and strategies for implementing ScratchJr in home and school settings.
