Scratch - it can be used for so many things but what is the purpose of Scratch for our learning hub?

Kids of all ages use Scratch. Teachers set up challenges and get their kids to complete them.

Scratch is SUCH an amazing community! The community, it has supporters, learners, all sorts but all use Scratch. I wouldn't want it to be anything different.
