Why Do Scratch? Why join the Williams Programming Club?

There are lots of reasons to program in scratch.


Scratch is easier to program than other programming languages because there isn’t as much typing involved compared to other programming languages. It does have tutorials, though.

Another reason to program in scratch is that it’s fun and free; you can make and play games and it even has statistics!

You can make calculators, so that it can be much easier to do calculations, and you need to do them when you go shopping or you do math, or you can make timers, so that you don’t have to count the time and you don’t even have to make them! You can do a scratch search for “calculator” and you’ll probably find a lot of projects or even a few collections of projects (called studios in scratch) just about calculators!


Programming in scratch can help you get a good career. Lots of jobs require programming. You write programs with software because they can run on all sorts of things like computers, phones, Ipads, cars, refrigerators, toasters, stoves, microwaves, lights, smart boards, 3D printers, 2D printers, televisions, electric pianos, electric guitars, electric unicycles, electric scooter, garage door openers, scanners, dishwashing machines, and bread machines. You can play music, either recorded or from the scratch website itself along with a character or background that you can draw online or get from the website yourself. Visit https://scratch.mit.edu/ to get the website. You don’t even have to sign up to program. You can even change the language!


In summary, scratch is an awesome programming language to use.

Below are some projects created by our students in the Williams Programming Club. This club meets ever Thursday and Friday morning in the Williams C3 computer lab to learn, share and have fun making up their own programs using Scratch. This club is made up of students from 2nd grade to 5th grade. 

Scratch is a visual programming language that provides a rich learning environment for people of all ages. It allows you to create interactive, media-rich projects, including animation, stories, book reports, science projects, games and simulations. 
Just click the links to view some student created games on Scratch.
