What's Scratch?

Scratch is a programming language and online community where you can create your own interactive stories, games, and animations - and share your creations with others around the world.  In the process of designing and programming Scratch projects, young people learn to think creatively, reason systematically, and work collaboratively.  Scratch is a project of the LifelongKindergarten group at the MIT Media Lab.  It is available for free at http://scratch.mit.edu.
