Scratch Day, May 12, 2018



Scratch, a free programming tool and online community for children 8-16, promotes creative thinking and collaboration among teaches kids by teaching them how to program their own animations, stories, and games. Every May on Scratch Day, children, adolescents, and adults come together in-person for organized events in schools, libraries, and homes to “meet, share, and learn” from each other.

On Scratch Day 2017, the platform celebrated its 10-year anniversary—over 1000 events were organized globally. Scratch Day 2018 will take place on May 12. As of April 30, 2018, over 450 Scratch Day community events had been registered worldwide, including at MIT.
