What is Scratch?

Scratch is an application that makes it easy to create your own interactive stories, animations, games, music, and art — and share your creations on the web.

As young people create and share Scratch projects, they learn important mathematical and computational ideas, while also learning to think creatively, reason systematically, and work collaboratively.

Scratch provides a simple drawing tool to allow you create characters, backgrounds or anything you can imagine.  It also provides simple drag and drop programming tools to allow you make you characters come alive.

Find out more about “Scratch” by visiting their website->

I think the link you posted is to a site inside the IBM firewall so the visitors to this blog won’t be able to access it. I guess they will just have to come visit out stand in person if they want to try out Jeapordy.

Hi Brian, Ah didn’t spot that. I have taken the demo link down and replaced with this link in right nav if people want to learn more about what Watson is and what it can do before they come to the stand.
