Whether you are a parent, teacher or student, you can use this software to help with any educational need or just to keep up with the demands of school subjects. It offers an entertaining way to learn instead of the basic word problems or math models that tend to lose the attention of students while they are in class. There are visual experiments and simulations that will provide an eye-opening view on science and math. Many of the lectures are recorded for those who are younger and can't read as well or for those who learn better by hearing instead of reading.

Animated presentations keep viewers interested in the lessons. The program also has interactive art and music that provides even more fun for learning. As a parent or teacher, you can create games for children based on the learning objectives for the week or to keep up on skills over the summer. If you homeschool your children, you will also benefit from this program. The program uses sprites for playing the games and delivering the lessons. The sprites are drawn using a special tool, or you can import images from other sources. Several projects are available from Scratch. It's free to join Scratch, or you can try a demo to see if you will like it before installing the program. Some of the projects are related to holidays, including the Fourth of July and Christmas. Games and lessons can be created based on the holidays. The viewer can also learn about maps, how to tell time, and shapes and colors.
