Learning Scratch

Scratch is a new visual programming language and an online community where children can program and share interactive media, such as stories, games and animations with people around the world.

Creating with SCRATCH, children learn to think creatively, work collaboratively, and to solve problems in a systematic way. Today, SCRATCH is a creative learning community present in more than 150 countries with more than 11 million users and more than 3 million of shared projects. SCRATCH is a free software developed by the Lifelong Kindergarten Group at the MIT Media Lab.
