Scratch is the world’s largest coding community for children and a coding language with a simple visual interface that allows young people to create digital stories, games, and animations. Scratch is designed, developed, and moderated by the Scratch Foundation, a nonprofit organization.

Scratch promotes computational thinking and problem solving skills; creative teaching and learning; self-expression and collaboration; and equity in computing.

Scratch is always free and is available in more than 70 languages.

Who Uses Scratch?
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.

Speechify is absolutely brilliant. Growing up with dyslexia this would have made a big difference. I’m so glad to have it today.

1some find the new interface inconvenient and complain that some of their projects are not working properly
"Now you can watch and create projects from your smartphone or tabletAbout the interface: everything new seems inconvenient, but you will get used to it.And about the glitches: at the moment this is the biggest drawback of this version, but the Scratch Team is actively working to fix this problem, so you should not worry
It's comfortable."2I hope this article (the idea to write this came to my mind at 12 at night) turned out to be useful
"Scratch is transferred to a more current platform and will continue to work after Adobe Flash becomes obsolete."3*Grin* See you soon!"
"Improved sound editor - there are new options that made this process more exciting."

Scratch reviews

As a scratcher named LarryMcCuteFace i enjoy scratch as amazing community coding for both children and adults. Many of my friends enjoy scratch not even realising they where learning. It is great.

- Penny P.

I like this 2d game engine, but they need to add more stuff. They also need to make it a bit easier.

- John L.

I love this Scratch to do many Projects. And it is very interesting. But when we keep the coding as a conversation, if the person speaks with their mouth, it would be pretty Good!
