Scratch is so cool!  You can make things just the way you want them.

Sam W, age 8

I love scratch club! I love making games and learning how to create new things.

Aidan N, age 8

The reason I like Scratch is it allows for a lot of creativity and I am a creative girl so I enjoy it!  It’s fun to make different stories, lists, mazes and games.

Dani V, age 9

I like Scratch Class is because it is really fun and we can learn how to program and that can help when we are older.

Suditi B, age 10

My son looks forward to attending Scratch Club after school each week …he enjoys creating his own video games and collaborating on projects.  As a parent, I am thrilled he is learning logical thinking and an introduction to programming.
