Scratch BCN Tactile - Open Source Community

Scratch BCN Tactile

An open-source community of unplugged, tangible and inclusive Scratch.

We love the use of Scratch Jr in the classroom, especially for children in early school years as a well-loved early educational programming tool and also Scratch for students from 7+..

This is why we made an adaptation of Scratch Jr to a "tactile unplugged experience" as we want to help making Creative Computing equitable and accessible for all, and facilitate learning in different creative ways.

Once you print all the Scratch Jr-based coding blocks using a 3D printer or laser cutter, you'll be able to create any story, game, or activity you can imagine !

Join Scratch BCN Tactile and share you new ideas and designs with this global community.
Let's make coding inclusive for all!
