Scratch:

In January 2014, Jamii, Karen, Anna and I collaborated on a Workshop we presented to students who attended the Expanding Your Horizons Conference in Albuquerque.  In March 2014, Jamii and I presented a similar Workshop to teachers who attended the Expanding Your Horizons Conference in Santa Fe.  These workshops were introductions to Scratch, a fun, interactive, drag-and-drop introduction to coding.  There are currently over 6 million shared Scratch projects.

We used Scratch 2.0 (Beta) which is now the stable distribution.  Scratch may be used online or downloaded for offline use.
