What is Scratch?
Scratch is a simple programming environment designed for kids aged 8 to 16 years old. It can also be used by people by all ages, including younger children with their parents.
Scratch allows users to drag and drop blocks of instructions to write programs. With Scratch you don’t need to know fancy text-based programming syntaxes, commas, parentheses that can be challenging to grasp when beginning to learn coding.
Scratch is a great tool for beginners to learn to code. You can program your own interactive stories, games and animations as well as share your creations with others in the Scratch online community.
Scratch is designed with learning and education in mind. It’s a great collaborative program for drawing art, playing music, and creating games.
Scratch is fun!
