Easy coding workshops with Scratch
Scratch is a visual programming language and online community targeted primarily at children. Using Scratch, users can create online projects and make them into anything by coding with simple blocks. When they are done or when the desire to, they then share and can discuss their creations with each other. Developed by the Lifelong Kindergarten group at the MIT Media Lab, the service is designed to help children (ages 8 and up) learn to imagine, reason with common sense, and work with computers.
At the Social Hackathon Umbria 2018 we organize two daily workshops to teach kids and youngsters between 8 and 14 years old how to use Scratch and create their own videogame, contemporarly developing their creativity and programming skills!

"paINTeraction" try-sation with the volunteers of the Perugia ATLAS Centre
PaINTeraction is a software designed in Turin by Leva Engineering Srl, financed by the Charlemagne Foundation Onlus, and it comes from an idea of Simone Donnari, a sort of Alice 2.0, with his con la sua decades of experience in the field of Art therapy; for its development we have also made use of the advice of the team of neuro-scientists of the University of Parma, famous for the discovery of mirror neurons.
The key elements of both software are a screen, a motion-sensitive camera and a computer projecting into a screen where you can see, just like in a mirror, the room and the people in front of you.
With paINTeraction, moving or emitting sounds, the screen starts generating light trails, or soap bubbles; the sound of a vowel causes, close to the mouth of the emissary, a cascade of the corresponding letter, or a trail of color and light.
Come and try paINTeraction all days at the PlayZone of SHU2018... entrance is free and you don't need to reserve!
