Inspire Kids To Unlock Their Coding Creativity With the PBS KIDS ScratchJr App

Posted on September 1, 2023

Encourage kids to use storytelling and creativity to build their own customizable games using the PBS KIDS ScratchJr app. Via the creative coding app, kids can design their own stories and build their own worlds by utilizing iconic PBS characters, design tools, and coding blocks to create their own content.

Experimenting with problem solving skills as they move through the design process, the app inspires children to not just learn to code, but code to learn.
