Scratch: Programming for Kids

Posted by freeschool on January 3, 2008

Check out Scratch, the MIT-developed programming environment that lets kids “script sprites and otherwise dip their little toes into machine logic.”

Scratch is a new programming language that makes it easy to create your own interactive stories, animations, games, music, and art — and share your creations on the web.

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.
