Scratch is an excellent program that helps children from 8 years old to learn the basics of programming and mathematics. The essence of it is to convey the basics of the above sciences to children in a playful and entertaining way. Also, with the help of this application, children will get acquainted with the basics of design.
Since Scratch was originally developed for children, the interface of the program is so simplified that young users do not have any serious problems using this application. All works are carried out in so-called projects. Not only can you create new projects, but you can also continue working with saved ones. With Scratch, children can create interactive stories, games and animations. Of course, it's all in pretty simple shape. The main window of the program is divided into three working sections: its own script, script block and the window of displaying the result of the selected script. In the scenario block you will find many logical constructions that are divided into categories (sound, pen, motion, appearance, sensors, variables, numbers and control). For example, in the category "movement" the user will find commands that are responsible for moving the object on the screen. In the window of your own script the user sees your own project.
