About Scratch

Scratch is a block-based coding platform that gives kids the opportunity to code their own interactive games, stories, and more. Students that are part of CS First will create their projects using Scratch.

Scratch is a project of the Lifelong Kindergarten Group at the MIT Media Lab.

The Scratch website is down or other issues

If you have trouble accessing or using the Scratch website, you can visit the Scratch help page, report the issue, and/or download Scratch Desktop. Please note: if you use Scratch Desktop with CS First, your students won't be able to share their projects and you will not be able to access student projects from your class dashboard.
