The Kando Project and Scratchlets

The Kando Project holds "creativity workshops" using Scratchlets, a physical manifestation of Scratch.

The Kando Project is headed by Sanjli Gidwaney, who is using Scratchlets as a way to bring Scratch to developing countries and areas where access to technology is limited. This physical adaptation of Scratch uses low-cost, magnet cutouts that look similar to Scratch blocks and are meant to be a precursor to using Scratch for if and when computers are available. The research project has brought creative learning experiences to children at the MIT Museum and India through workshops using Scratchlets and e-textiles.
