Adventures with Robots offers after-school and evening classes for kids who want to learn Scratch, the multimedia programming language developed by the Lifelong Kindergarten Group at MIT.

Scratch was developed by The Lifelong Kindergarten Group at MIT.

Does your kid dream of writing his or her own video games? We’ve found a great way to get started: Scratch, the super-simple drag-and-drop multimedia programming language designed by MIT‘s Lifelong Kindergarten project.

NOTE: Scratch is available to anyone for free on the Internet. Learn it at home! Or, sign up for one of our classes so one of The Great Adventure Lab's trained instructors can lead you through a lesson plan, where you’ll learn how to make characters walk, talk and boogie across the screen.
