With PBS Kids ScratchJr, kids can create with their favorite characters

Today, PBS KIDS, in collaboration with the DevTech Research Group at Tufts University, the Lifelong Kindergarten Group at the MIT Media Lab, and the Playful Invention Company, launched PBS KIDS ScratchJr, a free app inspired by ScratchJr. 

The new PBS KIDS ScratchJr app incorporates PBS KIDS media properties, including WILD KRATTS, WORDGIRL, PEG + CAT and the new series NATURE CAT. As children snap together programming blocks to make their favorite characters move, jump, dance and sing, they will learn to solve problems, design projects, and express themselves creatively.

PBS KIDS ScratchJr is now available for free from the App Store for iPad and on Google Play for Android tablet. More information on PBS KIDS apps is available at pbskids.org/apps.
