Scratch is a free, block-based programming language and online community developed by MIT for children and beginners to learn coding concepts in a user-friendly and interactive way.

It enables kids to create various interactive projects, including games, stories, and animations while using drag-and-drop blocks. Scratch is designed to be accessible to users with little or no prior programming experience, making it a great tool for children to learn coding in a fun and engaging way.

The Scratch platform promotes creativity, problem-solving, and collaboration. Users can share their projects with the community and receive feedback. Scratch also provides a range of resources such as tutorials, sample projects, and forums for users to interact with one another. The platform is widely used in schools and after-school programs and has been a great way to introduce coding to children because it encourages creativity and critical thinking.

Code Games and Apps in Scratch

The elementary school coding program at CodeWizardsHQ teaches children ages 8-10 to program games and apps using the Scratch platform. The first course in the core track is Animation and Games with Scratch, where students develop programming basics by creating animations, stories, characters, and games that utilize collision detection, scoring, and more. Through projects such as a rocket game, music project, and Ghostbusters game, they learn key programming concepts like variables, loops, and conditional statements.
