What's Included

Kids will learn to program in Scratch Jr., an introductory programming language (inspired by the popular Scratch programming language), that enables young children (ages 5-7) to create their own interactive stories and games. To code in Scratch Jr. kids snap together graphical programming blocks to make characters move, jump, dance, and sing. Kids can modify characters in the paint editor, add their own voices and sounds, even insert photos of themselves -- then use the programming blocks to make their characters come to life. Scratch Jr, was designed to be developmentally appropriate for younger children, with features to match young children's cognitive, personal, social, and emotional development. As kids code with Scratch Jr., they learn strategies for solving problems, designing projects, and communicating ideas. They learn how to divide complex problems into simpler parts, how to iteratively refine and improve their work, how to remix and build on the work of others and how to persevere in the face of challenges
