What is Scratch?

Scratch is developed by the Lifelong Kindergarten Group at the MIT Media Lab, with financial support from the National Science Foundation, Microsoft, Intel Foundation, Nokia, Iomega and MIT Media Lab research consortia.

Scratch is a programming language thats designed especially for kids. Through Scratch kids can create interactive stories, animations, games, music, and art -- and share creations on the web.

As young people create and share Scratch projects, they learn important mathematical and computational ideas, while also learning to think creatively, reason systematically, and work collaboratively.
