Brief course description
Scratch is the best educational programming software for kids available today. With Scratch, you can create games and interactive art projects all while having lots of fun!
Designed by the MIT Media Lab’s Lifelong Kindergarten Group for 8 to 16 year olds, Scratch is a free programming environment that runs in your web browser. But Scratch users consist of people of all ages, including younger children with their parents. The software makes it easy for anyone to start developing their programming and problem-solving skills.
I’m Al Sweigart, the author of several programming books for kids and beginners. This course follows the content of my latest book Scratch Programming Playground, which you can read for free online under a Creative Commons license. This is my second Udemy course following my highly-rated “Automate the Boring Stuff with Python Programming”.
