About Scratch

Scratch is a creative programming language and the world’s largest online coding community

for children and teens. Children around the world use Scratch and ScratchJr to create their own

interactive games, stories, and animations – and share their creations with one another. In the

process, they learn to think creatively, reason systematically, and work collaboratively. In 2023,

more than 33+ million young people around the world created projects with Scratch.
