It is specifically designed for kids from 8-16 years old, yet sophisticated enough to be used as an introductory course to computer science at many universities. Kids learn to manipulate codes by snapping them together like Lego blocks. Through Scratch, kids can develop an advanced sense of reasoning, logic, pa- tience and persistence. Their creativity will be heightened through constructing their own interactive content, such as stories, games, music, and art. Plus, it's just FUN! What will your child create today?
