Brieanne Elpert Scratch Journal
I found Scratch to be a great experience. I have personally never programmed before. I only have been a witness to a computer science friend of mine struggle through what looked like some pretty tough stuff. It's great because it's so visual. You don't have to spend so much time actually learning "another" language. This is in a language that is relatively natural. One little tidbit. The copy and paste function could use some work. When I tried to copy scripts to different entities, it was kind of tedious, and things weren't automatically put in the top left in the pane. It was all over the place, so I had to scroll to find the copies of my scripts. That's the only complaint I have. Otherwise, it's great!
