Scratch 101: Programming with Scratch 3.0

Scratch is an introductory programming language developed at MIT. It is a visual language where programming is done by moving and attaching blocks rather than by writing code. Scratch enables kids to quickly program graphics, animations, and games without getting bogged down by the complexities of modern programming languages. This course is the first in our sequence on Scratch programming and introduces Scratch by first walking you through creating your own account, writing simple programs, and then building your way up to creating complex movements. Students can make their sprites move in interesting ways across a chosen backdrop. Students will finish the course by completing a challenging project.

What you need to know

Absolutely no prior programming experience required! Students are expected to only know how to use a computer, e.g., to click, to type, to use a mouse, and to follow along our videos.

What you will learn

After completing this course, you would have mastered:
  • Elements of a Scratch program
  • Changing sprites and backdrops
  • Moving your sprite around the screen
  • Creating simple action sequences
  • The (x,y) coordinate system
  • Angles and rotation
  • Complex movements

System Requirements

  1. We will be using Scratch version 3.0 with a web browser.
  2. If you are on a desktop computer, you can use any of the following browsers: Chrome (63+), Edge (15+), Firefox (57+), or Safari (11+). Internet Explorer is NOT supported.
