Good news for young programmers! Google is teaming up with MIT’s Media Lab to create Scratch Blocks, an updated version of the kid-centric programming language. Scratch is a visual programming language developed by MIT’s Media Lab back in 2007 to make it easier for kids to learn the foundational knowledge required for programming and other technical skills. Now, the MIT team is partnering with Google on the next generation of Scratch, with the hope that Google can help scale Scratch to more platforms and devices. The new Scratch Blocks also use Google’s own visual programming language, Blockly.
