ScratchJr

By Scratch Foundation

Description

With ScratchJr, young children (ages 5-7) learn important new skills as they program their own interactive stories and games.

By snapping together graphical programming blocks, children can make characters move, jump, dance, and sing. In the process, children learn to solve problems, design projects, and express themselves creatively on the computer. They also use math and language in a meaningful and motivating context, supporting the development of early-childhood numeracy and literacy. With ScratchJr, children don’t just learn to code, they code to learn.

ScratchJr was inspired by the popular Scratch programming language (http://scratch.mit.edu), used by millions of people (ages 8 and up) around the world. The ScratchJr interface and programming language were redesigned to make them appropriate for younger children’s cognitive, personal, social, and emotional development.

ScratchJr is a collaboration between the Lifelong Kindergarten research group at the MIT Media Lab, the Developmental Technologies research group at Tufts University, and the Playful Invention Company. The ScratchJr project has received generous financial support from the National Science Foundation (NSF DRL-1118664), Scratch Foundation, LEGO Foundation, and British Telecommunications.

If you enjoy using this free app, please consider making a donation to the Scratch Foundation (www.scratchfoundation.org), a nonprofit organization that provides ongoing support for ScratchJr. We appreciate donations of all sizes, large and small.

Great for when I was younger...

I’m a 12 year old who used to use this app I think it’s great and is a great begging coding app. It has all the basics, but I wish there was more freedom. Example: import images; variables; backpack. These are things that make scratch great. Also I would really appreciate it if mit considered putting mit scratch on iOS/ mobile devices. And consider adding in a feature to enable users to export or save their project to continue on another device or save as a file if you end up deleting the app.
One final wish(for mit scratch and scratch junior)AUTO SAVE. I remember countless times of lost progress. I’m working on a puzzle game right now called Pico’s Adventure, and I lost progress of 3 levels of which I spent about 10 mins each on.

Best.

So in school we did it in technology and once I got home I zoomed to my iPad and downloaded it. Once I finished homework I went to my iPad played scratch JR and made a lot of them the more I do the better it gets! I recently made a game on scratch JR and I think it is cool there’s just one thing though... you can’t make it start off small or keep it hidden or rotate it. But one more thing (compliment) The cat is amazing the cat on real scratch is ugly. (No offense) thank you so much for making scratch jr

Why would you get this

The app is fine, it’s a good app for little kids but there is no need for a Scratch Jr because it’s just Scratch with less blocks, more bugs and just less everything, really. Scratch doesn’t even cost money. AND scratch is already for children! Tap the letters and they make funny sounds! Click on the face and it laughs! DRAG THE BALL WHEREVER YOU WANT! Those are all what Scratch Jr can do, but scratch can do things like: Press certain keys when the game tells you to! Hold this key for a certain amount of time! Griffpatch even made geometry dash! Just put normal scratch on the App Store. We don’t need a bad version of scratch.
