Arduino at the Scratch Conference 2016 Featured

Bernat Romagosa and Mareen Przybylla presented at MIT at the Scratch Conference 2016. 

The Scratch community grows rapidly.  There are more than 15 million projects shared in the Scratch online community – with 20,000 new projects every day.  All these projects are incredibly diverse and creative. At this year’s Scratch@MIT conference, these diversity and creativity was celebrated.  Participants got a chance to demonstrate their projects, share ideas, and express themselves with a lot of hands-on workshops.

Bernat’s poster session showcased the latest developments in Snap4Arduino, including the ability to remote control and broadcast over a network, a command line interpreter that can run regular Snap! projects inside new generation Arduino boards, and a new web-based version that runs on devices like Chromebooks and single-board computers. Attendees loved Bernat’s tug-of-war demo: everyone could connect to Wi-Fi and pull the rope for either red or blue team by simply tapping screens of their phones.

Mareen presented the Arduino TinkerKit, which is a physical computing construction kit with preassembled sensors and actuators that reduces the complexity of using Arduino. It allows for immediate tinkering and trial without the need of elaborated skills in physics or knowledge of the principles of electrical engineering. The audience loved Mareen’s lamp demonstration. By pressing different buttons, guests could control colors and brightness of LEDs inside the lamp.
