“Invent with Scratch” Screencast Series

I've created a series of video screencast tutorials for Scratch. Scratch is a block-based programming environment from MIT. It is a programming education toy that is made for kids between the ages of 8 and 16. The screencasts can be found at:

Scratch itself is hosted at http://scratch.mit.edu

I highly recommend Scratch as a teaching tool for younger kids who may not be ready for Python programming or are frustrated by their slow typing. Scratch is a drag-and-drop environment with code "blocks" that snap together.

  1. Al,

    I just bought your books for my 14 year old who’s just expressed an interest in programming. I only wish books like these were around when I was struggling through basic programming 20 years before.

    Keep up the great work.

  2. This is great! Thank you so much. I’m buying my step son a raspberry pi and this will really help him get started with Scratch and hopefully he will want to move onto Python after.
