Encouraging Students to Discover

Scratch is a visual programming language that makes it easy to create interactive stories, animations, games, music, and art and share these creations on the web.

Lero Education and Public Engagement

The Lero Education and Public Engagement strategy engages with the educational system in software. We have developed Scratch materials for teachers and students at primary and post-primary level. These materials are provided free of charge. Scratch is a project of the Lifelong Kindergarten Group at the MIT Media Lab. With Scratch, you can program your own interactive stories, games, and animations — and share your creations with others in the online community.
