  • Designed for ages 10 and up

Make your own arcade-style platform game "from Scratch," using MIT’s programming language for beginners. Scratch makes programming accessible by replacing typed commands with simple snap together logic blocks. Start with classics such as "Donkey Kong" and "Mario Bros." Pick and choose your favorite art and mechanics and remix them into something all your own.

Scratch lets you create your own interactive stories, animations, games, music, and art - and share your creations on the web. You will need an e-mail address (either your own or a parent's) in order to share your work online. But you can always bring your project home on a USB drive or CD.
