Howdy folks! Long time users of Scratch (the intro to computing program from MIT) has been stuck on version 1.4 for a long time now. Scratch is easy enough for elementary students (third maybe even second grade) can use it, but it is powerful enough that high school students and people in higher education can find uses as well.
Lately, there has been quite a bit of news concerning the latest version of Scratch scheduled to become available this Thursday, May 9th, but there are some things that you need to know about it before you dive in.
The biggest thing I am excited about is the fact that it is now browser based. which means no need for people at schools to download and install. They can just go to website, log in and get programming.
Here are some cool features that you can find in Scratch 2.0. It looks very exciting.
