In order to help you understand computer language more quickly and let children make their own works, experts from MIT's multimedia lab developed a computer language for children --Scratch. In Scratch, there is no need to memorize complex syntax and statements. Scratch is similar to building blocks, and programs can be written by dragging and dropping. Therefore, Scratch looks more visual, intuitive and easy to operate. Students can easily make their own works!
