As children create with Scratch, they learn to think creatively, work collaboratively, and reason systematically. (Scratch MIT). Scratch 3.0 is a JavaScript-based codebase made up of multiple components and is used as the introductory language because the creation of interesting programs is relatively easy, and skills learned can be applied to other programming languages such as Python and Java.
