Hear from Eric about what people have made for Scratch Month!
How to Participate
With Scratch, you can program your own interactive stories, games, and animations. Whether you are new to Scratch or a long-time user, we invite you to imagine what you would like to create. Scratch Month brings a playful spirit to those Scratching around the world!
During the month of May, the Scratch Team shared a series of weekly themes. People of all ages were invited to create projects based on any of the themes that inspired them. The weekly themes were published every Monday in May in the “Featured Studios” section of the Scratch online community.
Scratch Month themes and studio links: Here
The Scratch website featured studios for each of the themes launched in May. A studio is like an online gallery: it’s a collection of projects based on a certain theme. You can add Scratch Month projects to the studios to share with the larger online community — as well as see what others around the world have created. Scratch Month theme studios were launched every Monday in May on the Scratch homepage.
