Scratch Day is an annual, global network of events that celebrate the Scratch programming language and the young people who code and create with it – and this year it takes place Saturday, May 9! If you’re local, there’s a great event in Cherry Creek in Denver that we’ve joined in on in past years, and for a full map of events worldwide, or to host your own, check out MIT’s Scratch Day site!
