A free educational programming language for children, Scratch is developed by the Lifelong Kindergarten Group at MIT and deserves a Dearest gold medal. By dragging blocks from the block palette and attaching them to other blocks like a jigsaw puzzle, your child is able to program his/her own interactive stories, games, and animations. With over 15 million registered users and 19 million shared projects, your child can share his/her creations with others on Scratch’s online community. Scratch helps children learn to think creatively, reason systematically, and work collaboratively -- essential skills that are highly valued by Dearest.
