Scratch & Share: Collaborating with Youth to Develop the Next Generation of Creative Software

Project Description:
Scratch is a free, graphical programming language that enables young people from age 8 up to create their own interactive stories, games, animations, and simulations. Originally launched in 2007, this next generation of Scratch expands opportunities for young people to share ideas, collaborate on projects, and develop as creative thinkers. Scratch & Share enlists youth and teen online community members as active development partners, and allows them to share projects across mobile platforms, to integrate them into social media including Facebook and Twitter, and to remix them more seamlessly.
