Scratch is a free tool that has been developed by the MIT Media Lab and it can be used to create Stories, Games and Animations. It is a stepping stone to the world of Computer Programming.
The Scratch website can be used to share your project with the world and to view the projects that other people have shared.
MIT App Inventor is a free tool which can be used to create Android Apps. It works right inside your web browser and you can create Apps very quickly because it is a blocks-based programming tool that does not require knowing any programming language.
The interface is extremely simple and graphical and without knowing any programming- you can create an app in less than an hour!
Machine Learning is the science of using data to teach computers how to mimic intelligent human behaviors.
