Scratch Programming

Scratch is a programming language which allows you to create amongst other things games. You can create characters that dance, sing, and interact with one another.

Scratch allows you to create images that whirl, spin, and animate in response to  movements of the mouse.

The name Scratch comes from the scratching technique used by hip-hop disc  jockeys, who spin vinyl records back and forth  with their hands to mix music clips together in creative ways.

At the core of Scratch is a graphical programming language that lets you control the actions and interactions among media on their computers today.

Coding in Scratch is much easier than in traditional programming languages: to create a script or program, you simply snap together  graphical blocks, much like LEGO bricks or  puzzle pieces
