Scratching through the ceiling

Presenter(s): Richard Millwood, Nina Bresnihan, Jake Byrne, Glenn Strong (IE)

Summary: One kid says: “why can’t I have a high ceiling in Scratch?”. Another says “low ceiling is fine, get a life and learn Python!” Who is right? Why can’t we tackle as complex problems as we like with Scratch? Why not have a wider range of real-world micro-worlds, full-on debug tools, computer science feature set, Github style collaboration, code rewind? There’s only one way to settle this – fight!
