There will have 4 Meetups throughout the school year, you are welcome to join us at one or all!

*What is a Scratch Educator Meetup?*
A Scratch Educator Meetup is a gathering of Scratch Educators who want to learn with and from each other, sharing their ideas and strategies for supporting computational creativity in all its forms
*What will we be doing at the meetup? *
1. We start with networking, getting to know fellow attendees and sharing what people want to explore during the meetup.
2. We collaboratively decide how to structure our learning and then form small groups based on our different interests. Maybe you want to have a discussion about classroom strategies or get more practice with Scratch—or something else entirely. Feel free to move between groups if the session that you're in isn't working for you.
3. We gather as a whole group for lunch and group sharing. You might pose a question to discuss with the group, or share something from your classroom. This is a great time to inspire and be inspired.

Open to ALL K-12 educators in ANY subject area with any experience level.

What should I bring?
Curiosity. And a laptop (Chrome, Windows or Mac)
