Shruti Dhariwal

Hi everyone! I’m Shruti. I’m a 1st year masters student at MIT Media Lab in Lifelong Kindergarten. Since last year, I’ve worked on developing interest-based coding activities and new learning resources to help young children get started with Scratch programming language. Currently, I’m playing with data visualization using p5.js. I love thinking about unusual designs and narratives to represent usual information and ideas.

I studied computer science in undergrad and most recently, before coming to MIT, I was designing tabletop games for children in India. Having worked in both physical and digital mediums with children, I am excited to explore completely new possibilities and interfaces that combine these two in a novel, personally meaningful, and playful way.
