Scratch day at Massachusetts Institute of Technology

Scratch day is celebrated worldwide and may be the largest celebration was here in MIT, where Scratch originated. After the opening ceremony as part of open sessions people of all ages could demonstrate their scratch programs.

Rishab grabbed his slot for demonstrating his programs.

Rishab demonstrated aquarium that he developed last year. Many people visited him and were curious to see what he has done.

This was the first time he saw his scratch programs being seen by others with so much curiosity. At the end of the demonstration he said he would like to create more programs.

He was the youngest to demonstrate there. But he is so tall that most people assume him to be way more older.  But for his age, its still a great progress.

Few minutes later we met Mitchel Resnick who is the designer of Scratch program and he saw Rishab’s animation program.

Although Rishab didn’t have any idea whom he was meeting, but later at home when I shared videos of Mitchel on TED, he was surprised. Mitchel discussed with us about how Rishab got in to Scratch programming so early on and then invited us to try ScratchJr beta version which is not yet available for public. It will be available on IOS towards the end of this year. Android version will be released next year.

When closing ceremony was going on, Rishab kept repeating that he would like to be here. This was the first one for him and definitely there will be many more in future.
