In this session, we will create interactive poetry about our identities using Scratch — an online platform and community where you can program your own interactive stories, games, and animations — and the Makey Makey invention kit. We’ll start with a poem template called “Where I Am From,” then experiment with ways to make our words and images come to life. After sharing and reflecting, we'll brainstorm how to adapt this activity for youth in your own settings. (We recommend bringing a laptop to this session, if possible.)

This is a Shed session.
