With ScratchJr, young children (ages 5-7) learn important new skills as they program their own interactive stories and games.

By snapping together graphical programming blocks, children can make characters move, jump, dance, and sing. In the process, children learn to solve problems, design projects, and express themselves creatively on the computer. They also use math and language in a meaningful and motivating context, supporting the development of early-childhood numeracy and literacy. With ScratchJr, children don’t just learn to code, they code to learn.

ScratchJr was inspired by the popular Scratch programming language (, used by millions of people (ages 8 and up) around the world. The ScratchJr interface and programming language were redesigned to make them appropriate for younger children’s cognitive, personal, social, and emotional development.

ScratchJr is a collaboration between the Lifelong Kindergarten research group at the MIT Media Lab, the Developmental Technologies research group at Tufts University, and the Playful Invention Company. The ScratchJr project has received generous financial support from the National Science Foundation (NSF DRL-1118664), Scratch Foundation, LEGO Foundation, and British Telecommunications.

Excellent app but the latest version is Broken

It’s been 6 months now and the bug introduced in this version. has not been fixed. It makes this app basically useless to do anything remotely complicated now
I appreciate it’s free BUT if you introduce a serious bug like you did and due to Apple’s policies there is no way to downgrade to the previous version you should be somewhat prompt to fix it. It has completely ruined my class environment sadly...

**********Something is broken in this latest update
When ever you try to drag and drop a program to another character it scrolls the entire screen meaning you can not reach the first couple of characters
