    What is Scratch?

    As people create and share Scratch projects, they learn important mathematical and computational ideas, while also learning to think creatively, reason systematically, and work collaboratively. Scratch is a programming language that uses blocks of different color and shape to represent the various parts of coding. These blocks visually snap together to create scripts. Due to this drag and drop method, it is easy to see, edit, and test the scripts and their parts. Scratch is a project of the Lifelong Kindergarten group at the MIT Media Lab. It is available for free download from http://scratch.mit.edu.
