The first European conference on Scratch will take place in Barcelona (Spain) on July 25-27, 2013.
Educators, researchers, developers and other members of the worldwide Scratch community will gather to celebrate and share the creative possibilities of this educational programming language, designed especially for ages 8 to 16.
Millions of people are creating Scratch projects in a wide variety of settings, including homes, schools, museums, libraries, and community centres. Scratch is used in more than 150 different countries and available in more than 40 languages.
Scratch is a project of the Lifelong Kindergarten Group at the MIT Media Lab. It is provided free of charge.
