Getting Started with Sharing and Remixing Scratch Projects

One of the nice things about learning programming using Scratch is that they make it super-easy to share your projects and build new projects based on something someone else has done.

It’s all about “remixing.”

To get started, you’ll probably want to create a Scratch logon for yourself – goto the main Scratch studio page and click the button to “Join Scratch.” Once you’ve joined, you can:

  • Save your work.
  • Share your projects.
  • Create your own Scratch studio that has all the projects you’ve worked on (for easy sharing!).
  • Remix other projects.

So, What Do You Want to Share and Remix?

If you’ve never done any Scratch programming before, it can be a little hard to figure out where to get started. Here’s a few ideas:

When You Are Ready to Remix

Once you’ve got some ideas, find a project that you’d like to start with. For example, you could try Animate the Crab. 🙂

Just do this:

  • Click the button to “See inside.” (so you can see the code!)
  • Then, click the button to “Remix.”

Now you have your own project based on the original “Animate the Crab” and you can change it however you’d like!

… And, Sharing…

When you are ready to share your new project, that’s easy too – just click the “Share” button, type in a few comments about your project, and decide whether you want to add it to your own personal studio, share it with the world, or whatever…

Happy coding! 🙂
