Scratch is a new programming language that makes it easy to create your own interactive stories, games, and animations – and share your creations with others on the web.

Scratch is developed by the Lifelong Kindergarten research group at the MIT Media Lab ( Our group develops new technologies that, in the spirit of the blocks and finger paint of kindergarten, expand the range of what people can design, create, and learn.

The development of Scratch has been supported with funding from the National Science Foundation, Microsoft, Intel Foundation, Nokia, and the MIT Media Lab research consortia.

This guide and other Scratch print materials were created by Natalie Rusk and other members of the Scratch development team.

Special thanks to Kate Nazemi and Lauren Bessen for the design of the print materials.

Many thanks to all the Scratch translators from around the world.
