Getting Started

Welcome to the beginning of your Scratch learning journey! Here, I will teach you how to get to Scratch, make an account, and the basics of Scratch.

1. Getting to the Website

To start, first let’s type “” in the search/URL bar. Then your screen should look like this if you are not logged in. If you are logged in, go on and skip ahead to step 3.

2. Making an Account

Now let’s make an account. If you already have an account, skip ahead to step 3. To get to the Sign Up screen you have to click the “Join Scratch” button as shown below.

Then you will be taken to the Sign-Up page. Then, enter a username and password of your choice. After that, select what country you live in. Then, enter your birth month and birth year. Then select your gender (Male = Boy/Man | Female = Girl/Woman). Then enter your Email address. If you don’t have an Email, then ask your parents if you can use theirs. Remember, they only use the Email for verification purposes only unless you check the “I’d like to receive emails” box. Then finally, click the “Create Account” button and your account if not complete! Make sure to write it down so you don’t forget it. Now to officially complete the setup you have to confirm your email. To do that, check your inbox or ask your parent to check their inbox if you put their Email in.

3. Making your First Project

Now that you have an account, it is finally time to start coding your first project! To make the project, you will need to watch the video below:
