What is Scratch?
Scratch is a programming language and online community where you can create your own interactive stories, games, and animations--and share the creations with others around the world.  In the process of designing and programming Scratch projects, young people learn to think creatively, reason systematically and work collaboratively--essential skills for life in the 21st century.  Scratch is a project of Lifelong Kindergarten group at MIT Media Lab.

Scratch is designed especially for ages 8 to 16, but is used by people of all ages.  Millions of people are creating Scratch projects in a wide variety of settings, including homes, schools, museums, libraries and community centers.
