Editorial Review


An Excerpt from the Foreword

“Scratch is more than a piece of software. It is part of a broader educational mission. We designed Scratch to help young people prepare for life in today's fast-changing society. As young people create Scratch projects, they are not just learning how to write computer programs. They are learning to think creatively, reason systematically, and work collaboratively—essential skills for success and happiness in today's world.

As you read this book, let your imagination run wild. What will you create with Scratch?”

—Professor Mitchel Resnick, Director, MIT Scratch Team, MIT Media Lab
