Scratch for Kids : imagine – program – share


Scratch is a new programming language that makes it easy to create interactive stories, animations, games, music, and art — and share the creations on the web. Scratch has been created by the “Lifelong Kindergarten Group” at the MIT Media Lab under the lead of Andrés Monroy-Hernández.

Scratch is designed to help young people (ages 8 and up) develop 21st century learning skills. As they create Scratch projects, young people learn important mathematical and computational ideas, while also gaining a deeper understanding of the process of design.
