Everyone knows the game Rock, Paper, Scissors. Well, what if we decided our elections that way? Wait. Maybe we should. You be the judge.

In this workshop, learn Scratch, a simple web-based programming language developed in MIT's Media Lab. Make Characters, or "sprites" who speechify. See who gets 'elected' with your rock, paper, scissors mechanism.

You will need an e-mail address (either your own or a parent's) in order to share your work online. Or, you can bring your project home on a USB drive or CD.
