Design and Technology
Scratch is a web-based computer program that allows a beginner to write code, like a computer programmer. With Scratch, you can program your own interactive stories, games, and animations – and share your creations with others in the online community.
You may do this on your own or work with a partner if you wish. This page is available in the handout folder as well.
To start, go to http://scratch.mit.edu and choose to create, or explore other projects before starting. If you choose to create, you can follow the instructions to the right of your screen.
