Scratch on the desktop is a programming language and environment that makes it easy to create your own interactive stories, animations, games, music, and art -- and share your creations on the web, and now on your iPhone, iPod Touch, or iPad.

Currently the Scratch site has nearly a million projects built by 114,584 content creators. Using the desktop version of the Scratch Authoring Tool you can build a project, upload that to the Scratch website, then view and interact with it using this Viewer app.

As young people create and share Scratch projects, they learn important mathematical and computational ideas, while also learning to think creatively, reason systematically, and work collaboratively.
