My son's first game written in Scratch

Scratch is a programming language used as an entry point to coding. My son Samuel (age 9) is using Scratch in his coding lessons at school and developed his first game ‘Attempt to land the Fireflash’ on his Raspberry pi version. The game is inspired by a scene in Thunderbirds where Alan and Gordon have to land Fireflash on the back of a car. In this screen-capture Samuel demonstrates his game and introduces various elements of Scratch programming. Scratch can be downloaded from

Starting this term he has coding lessons twice a week at school. He built this with the Raspberry Pi version of Scratch, and did the screencast in Ubuntu using the Kazam screencaster software.
