Scratch

Scratch

Scratch is a block-based visual programming language targeted primarily at children. The syntax complexities of a program become obsolete through the block-based visual programming approach helping an individual spur interest in programming. Learning the foundations of programming with our Scratch course does not require any programming knowledge. Engaging with the activities in this course helps exercise creativity, imagination, apply logic, and create designs. Who knows, you may become the next Mark Zuckerburg or Steve Jobs.
