If you’re interested in starting to learn how to code, there’s no better language than Scratch. Scratch coding is a free visual programming language that’s easy for beginners to pick up because it introduces all the logic of coding, without the fuss of written syntax. Designed by MIT, Scratch, provides the tools for students of all ages to conquer fundamental coding concepts. Kids can quickly harness Scratch to create their own imaginative stories, games, and animations.

In this fun free Scratch class, based on a curriculum designed by Stanford, Google, and MIT experts, students get to learn with personalized instruction from a live expert. The small group setting - of just 5 students max - provides kids the opportunity to collaborate. Using an inquiry-based method, our teachers keep kids engaged with questions and discussions in all our Scratch classes. Kids even get to create their very first program in this free intro!

Is Scratch real coding?

Absolutely Scratch is real coding. While it is a block-based language (meaning students drag and drop blocks with different meanings to construct their program’s instructions) as children create with Scratch, they learn to think creatively, work collaboratively, and reason systematically, as they would with any other programming language.
