I spent a fun couple of hours yesterday with my nine year old nephew Kyle, using Scratch.
In two hours my 9 yr old nephew completed a program incorporating recorded sounds, photos, keypress events – Awesome!
It’s a fantastic development tool for kids which introduces them to many aspects of coding in a fun and engaging way.
My nephew’s previous coding experience was limited to logo – which although a great tool is not a patch on Scratch! Within two hours we had put together a short program incorporating recorded sounds, photos, keypress events, loop blocks and sprites.
We even managed to deploy it to the internet so that other family members could see his work! If you have kids, I cant recommend this software enough.
