Scratch is so many things. It’s software used by millions across the globe to create animations, games and interactive projects while learning the fundamentals of coding. It’s a platform for expression, it’s a gateway to knowing that you can create, it’s a way to share your ideas with the world at large and the millions that form the community of Scratchers - a community of learners, educators learners, tinkerers, educators, enthusiasts, researchers, and parents.
