Scratch Jr was designed for younger children as a precursor to other programming languages. Students control how their characters look and move; add sounds and images; and then use the programming blocks to bring their characters to life. As young children code with Scratch Jr, they learn to create and express themselves with the computer, rather than just interact with software created by others. Students learn to think sequentially, explore cause and effect, and problem-solving skills.
