Scratch is an introduction to the enormous world of coding. It's where you get a great opportunity to practice what is known as 'computational thinking'. That means giving very specific directions to the computer in order. Someone has already 'coded' the sprites, backdrops and directions for you. Your job is to give them commands to interact.
Want a more in-depth challenge? Many of you might feel like you're ready to learn an actual coding language. Java Script is a computer language that is used often, and Khan Academy can help you learn how to use it beautifully. Once our holiday cards in Scratch are done. well be moving on to Khan Academy to learn more about what goes on in the real world of coding. Enjoy!
