MIT’s Scratch allows you to create interactive stories, animations, games, music, and art - and share your creations on the web. Scratch has come a long way since version 1 was released in 2007. It is more powerful than ever, with a rich library of games and animation to draw inspiration from. And all of the code shared on Scratch is “open source,” which means you have the ability to look inside, to puzzle out how it works, and “remix” projects as your own by adding new art or new code.

Open source means that everybody can see everyone else’s work, and everybody can learn from everyone else’s work. And that means everybody can work together to create bigger, better projects. They say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, so we’ll look at some of Scratch’s best games and learn from our favorite sprites and scripts, then combine them into something fresh. Then share online so that others can learn from you.

You will need an e-mail address (either your own or a parent's) in order to share your work online. Or, you can bring your project home on a USB drive or CD.
