Developed in 2003 by the MIT Media Lab, the Scratch computer language used in this class is specifically designed for kids ages 8 to 16. It allows students to create animations and games through an internet browser or a free downloadable offline Scratch editor.

Our MIT Game Development class allows for students to learn all the major computer programming terms and concepts through block programming. The students make animations and games to learn terminology like variables, string processing, loops, and more.
