Summary: 

MapScratch is an experimental (still unreleased) feature in Scratch 2.0 that allows users to create interactive tours, games, and data visualizations with real-world geographical data and maps. This workshop will introduce MapScratch to participants, who will get a chance to make and share projects using the experimental map blocks. The workshop will also include a discussion on possible applications of MapScratch in various contexts (science projects, storytelling, games, etc.). Participants are expected to be familiar with the basics of Scratch 2.0 and should bring their own laptop.
