Join Scratch enthusiasts in the Washington DC-area to meet and learn from each other!


Come and explore, or bring your models and robots and come and play!


Scratch is a free computer programming resource that makes it easy to create your own interactive stories, animations, games, music, and art -- and share your creations on the web.


All interested students, parents and teachers are invited to learn more about Scratch and robotics, featuring Junior FIRST LEGO League, FIRST LEGO League, FIRST Tech Challenge, VEX Robotics and Sea Perch—underwater robotics!


Attend an FLL Coaches workshop for beginners and GET READY FOR THE BODY FORWARD CHALLENGE!

At 11:00 AM, we are pleased to welcome Vishal Saxena, Medical Student (Orthopedic Surgery) from the University of Chicago to speak about biomedical engineering (prosthetics).
