> Hi All,
> Scratch Day 2010 is Saturday, May 22, 2010.  We already have an event
> scheduled at the Arlington Career Center from 1 to 4 pm:
> http://day.scratch.mit.edu/event/206
> Last year was our first event, and we certainly consider it a success,
> but one thing we noticed was that the kids, the very folks for whom
> Scratch was created, were a bit bored by all the adult yakity yak that
> went on.  We want to learn from that, and make sure that our event
> this year is *much* more kid friendly.
> Since we have the space, I would like to make a proposal and start a
> conversation around the idea of having a "Scratch Circus" - we can run
> up to 3 activities simultaneously.  One should be a "Scratch
> Playground" where kids can use Scratch and share what they are doing
> with each other.  Another should be a "Teaching with Scratch" thing
> for teachers interested in learning how to use Scratch in their
> classrooms.
> This is just a proposal meant to get a conversation started.  If you
> have an interest in Scratch and ideas or suggestions for how we can
> make this year's Scratch Day a smashingly good time for all, please
> join in the conversation.  If you would like to lead a workshop, do a
> presentation, or help run a mini session, please let us know.  Also,
> feel free to forward this email widely so we can reach as many
> Scratchers as possible.
> Thanks!
