Physics and Scratch - Piotr Nieżurawski

Physics-related projects in Scratch. At the beginning - skeletons that you can remix and create, for example, games. Then you find some bigger projects.
Scratch is developed by the Lifelong Kindergarten Group at the MIT Media Lab. It is available for free on scratch.mit.edu.

For many years I have been teaching physics, mainly as a lecturer at the Faculty of Physics, University of Warsaw . Scratch is an attractive platform for children and teenagers. I am sure it can be used to familiarize them with the elements of physics. And that's why I made this page. I hope that soon Scratch (version 3.0) will allow us to create even better projects, especially with higher resolution of the stage.
