Event description

Description

Scratch Conference Europe 2019 will be held at Churchill College, Cambridge from Friday 23 August to Sunday 25 August 2019.

Held in the beautiful grounds of Churchill College, Scratch Conference Europe brings teachers, education professionals, and volunteers together from all over the world to collaborate and learn from each other. It is the first Scratch Conference to be held in the UK. Join us to discuss creative ways to use Scratch, find others to connect and collaborate with, and take the lessons you learn back to your own community.

The conference is for educators – both educators working in schools, and volunteers – who want to be inspired by the cutting edge of Scratch-related educational practice. It is not an event for children.

Early bird tickets cost £90. Tickets will cost £120 from 1 June 2019. For more information, please visit the Scratch Conference Europe website. #scratcheurope
