Introduction to Scratch
Today in Techie Club we learned about Scratch. Scratch was made by people from a college called M.I.T. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology). They wanted to create an application so kids could be able to program easily. There are 8 tabs that you use to program. The keys are for motion, looks, sound, pen, control, sensing, operators, and variables. With just these 8 tabs you can practically program anything. The characters in scratch are called sprites and you can program them to do what you want them to do. There are two ways to create a sprite, you can draw it or use one of the sprites that comes from the program. When you create your program you click on a tab and there are a list of puzzle pieces you can choose from and when you put them together you create a program. Just by putting a few puzzle pieces together you can create ANYTHING in Scratch!
