Scratch – First Steps combines colourful graphics with clear step by step instructions and is designed to get young people up and running with coding. It’s good for complete beginners as well as anyone who needs a refresher on the basics. The Guide is free to download and use anywhere, anytime you like, so just go to https://stemforstarters.com/first_steps and start coding!
The Scratch programming language is fun and easy to use but also surprisingly powerful. It’s free, runs on most kinds of computer and supports the KS2 computing curriculum.
