scratch.mit.edu - Let Kids Program Their Own Games and Animations

Scratch is a programming environment for beginners, where kids can use a simple programming syntax to create their own interactive stories, animations, games, music, and art, and share their creations on the web


Scratch animations consist of sprites that you animate by visually dragging MOVE blocks into the Scripts area in the Scratch interface. Muliptle sprites can be created and interact with one another. Use built-in sprites or draw your own using a drawing tool. You can change how a sprite looks by giving it a different costume.

Programming statements that can be used in Scratch include "if/then"-clauses, "repeat/until" constructs, loops and much more. Programming syntax is graphically represented as puzzle pieces.

Once a game or animation is finished, it can be published online on the www.scratch.mit.edu website for the whole world to view and use!

I have been using scratch for a year now, and I still love it! One of the great things about scratch is that you will never stop learning with it; I have created platformers, dress-ups, pianos, and an "rpg"game with it, and I highly recommend scratch for both children and adults alike. Check out others' projects on Scratch.mit.edu and if you want, checkout what I have posted on my account 'Firebird202'

i think that this stuff is pretty boring and i dont know how people can find it fascinating. Whats the point in getting given this for an assignment when your own teacher doesnt even get it themselves. We need young smart teachers and nice. Not old & smelly and dumb & mean.
