Scratch is the wildly popular educational programming language used by millions of first-time learners in classrooms, libraries, and homes worldwide. Kids quickly learn computer-programming concepts by combining colorful blocks of code. This cartoon-illustrated book teaches programming fundamentals with patient, step-by-step explanations and exciting programming challenges.

  1. Great list! Thanks for sharing. My STEM gift list is smaller, but has some overlap with yours. It’s at http://www.themakermom.com/2012/11/hot-holiday-stem-gifts-for-kids-ps-im.html

    I have absolutely nothing to add to the list at this time, but I just wanted to say thank you. These are incredibly awesome ‘toys’ and though all my holiday shopping is done, every item here has made my christmas list for my kids next year. (boy 9 girl 5)
    The most I could come up with myself this year were a telescope, carnivorous plant system, triops, k’nex roller coaster, and a robot building kit.
    These are so much more awesome! thank you!!!!
