Kids!

Scratch is a free programming language that helps you learn to code while making your own video games, animated stories, and interactive art.

To give you a feel for the fun of creating with Scratch, we’d like to share this 3 minute video.

To learn more about Scratch and begin using it for free, you can visit http://scratch.mit.edu.

If you’d like to be part of a Scratch Workshop from MindDance Coding where you get to create Scratch projects with inspiration from teachers and peers, ask your parents to consider signing you up for a MindDance class.

Parents!

Here are some links that you may find helpful for understanding both the joy and value of learning to code with Scratch.
