My son James has just entered his school’s Scratch coding competition. He has spent nearly a month on his masterpiece.

I was initially sceptical of the benefits of scratch but when a ten year old lectures his dad about the benefits of keeping code contained within the appropriate object and hiding variables from objects that don’t need it I consider myself well and truly corrected.

And I noticed that they have an embed feature. So here it is. If you have a minute please leave a comment or a like because he is trying to upgrade his account to a “scratcher” rather than a “new scratcher” so he can use cloud variables. Here is the Scratch Week In Hell project page.
