Scratch: programming language for kids

scratch_compScratch is a simplified programming language for kids between 8 and 16 years. Scratch enables them to explore their imagination and creativity by designing interactive animations, stories, games, Art and music. It is also a platform to work collaboratively, reason systematically and share with kids around the globe. Scratch has an online editor that can be accessed from any browser.

Right now Scratch hosts around 5 million projects which should give a clear picture of how popular it is. Scratch is an educational initiative for kids from MIT Media Lab. And Scratch is fun!
