This workshop will be to give participants a Turtlestitch experience - developing a program to make an embroidery. Participants will be introduced to Turtlestitch and given some knowledge of the considerations needed in mind when programming for output on an embroidery machine. Then the idea will be to start from artworks provided by the workshop leaders or found on the internet, which they will be encouraged to 'decode' and then convert to Turtlestitch programs, particularly where randomisation and mathematics play a role in the design. Inspiration may come from art, mathematics or architecture. Participants will be supported throughout by three enthusiasts with experience of this activity and will be encourage to work with each other.

The Secrets & Surprises in Coding Spirals:
TurtleStitch Tur-torial

Cynthia Solomon, Sarah Magner,

WORKSHOP DESCRIPTION In this workshop, we will focus on building blocks that allow you to play with polygons and spirals with TurtleStitch. If you create a design you love and do not have access to a computerized embroidery machine, global TurtleStitch community friends will embroider & mail you your design!

TurtleStitch is an activity and a coding environment. TurtleStitching is a mi...


Grand Gestures
Storytelling with AI

Jens Mönig, Jadga Hügle

In this workshop we'll share a curriculum around AI that we're currently working on. We try to show how to use machine learning in the classroom by implementing a gesture recognizer (based on the $1 gesture recognizer) in Snap!

We start by creating a single-stroke gesture drawing program.
By building an "animate" control structure based on the pen trails, we are able to animate our drawn...


Codification (Transformation) of GUI Elements and database structures from SNAP to Python
From blocks language to typing language by SNAP Code conversion

Matthias Kim

Codification means to create Python code directly out of SNAP Code via a mapping SNAP blocks to Python code. The created Python Code via codification in SNAP is downloaded and runs immediately in Python. This has been useful in supporting the steps from SNAP development in a blocks language to a typing language. I would like to show how we enhanced codification with GUI elements: There a...
