What Youth are Saying about Scratch
I like Scratch better than blogs or social networking sites like Facebook because
we’re creating interesting games and projects that are fun to play, watch, and download.
I don’t like to just talk to other people online, I like to talk about something creative and new.”
My 8-year-old brother and I have been active participants of the Scratch Online Community for over a year.
I enjoy designing and programming games and animations with other kids, because different people have different skills,
and when you work together, you can build a much better project than you can alone.”
Making games is something I've always thought would be fun,
but I didn't want a really complex programming language. In the beginning, even Scratch seemed complex, but after sticking with it for a while, I've been able to make some amazing games. And the fact that you can share projects so easily makes it even better. Scratch is awesome!”
Using a set of about 100 commands that can be snapped together visually, you can create just about anything and learn the fundamentals of more advanced languages. In addition, there's a whole community of people online who will give you feedback on our projects, and gladly help you with your questions.”
