Programming with Scratch

Inspired by the launch of the Raspberry Pi computer ( I went into my daughter’s school last month to teach the key stage 2 kids some games programming with Scratch. See more here ( ). Just waiting for some Pi's to arrive and we can make our own games console!

I was introduced to computing by soldering together ZX80 kits when I was about their age. I think it’s critical for the UK to get a new generation of kids into creating content rather than just consuming it. I hope the Raspberry Pi will be as influential as the BBC Micro was for me and my generation.
