“Scratch” Teaches Programming Concepts to Kids

It’s important to inspire the next generation to get interested in programming. In 2007, MIT’s Media Lab launched Scratch. Scratch is an educational programming language intended to teach kids programming concepts and allow them to easily create and share “interactive stories, animations, games, music, and art.”

With Scratch, it is easy to see how your program works and runs.

Scratch's ease of use makes it easy for anyone to begin programming.

Scratch is designed to help young people (ages 8 and up) develop 21st century learning skills. As they create and share Scratch projects, young people learn important mathematical and computational ideas, while also learning to think creatively, reason systematically, and work collaboratively.

If you know of a young person who is interested in learning how to program, consider introducing them to Scratch. Or, try it out for yourself! It’s free! Scratch.
