Scratch

With Scratch, you can program your own interactive stories, games, and animations — and share your creations with others in the online community.

Scratch helps young people learn to think creatively, reason systematically, and work collaboratively — essential skills for life

Scratch is a project of the Lifelong Kindergarten Group at the MIT Media Lab. It is provided free of charge.

 

Scratch is designed especially for ages 8 to 16, but is used by people of all ages. Millions of people are creating Scratch projects in a wide variety of settings, including homes, schools, museums, libraries, and community centres.

Scratch is available to use online at http://scratch.mit.edu/ or can also be downloaded for offline use at http://scratch.mit.edu/scratch2download/
