Does the Scratch Jr Tactile website meet accessibility criteria?

We continuously work towards the accessibility of both the web and the teaching materials, which are designed to be read with a web reader. This website is recently created and in the coming months we will be working to improve accessibility measures, since it is a great priority for us to reach everyone and leave no one behind. 

If I can't or don't want to make the Scratch Jr Tactile, can I buy it?

We encourage all educators and families to make their own kit in a nearby maker space or by asking a nearby maker fan for help. One of the goals of Scratch Jr Tactile is to build a community and a network of solidarity and mutual support. Items have been designed to be simple to mod and craft with various technologies so you can use the one that is most available to you. Let us know how we can best support you so that you can make your own kit.


Even so, many people write to us because they want to buy the kit. If you don't have the option to manufacture it, next October 2023 you will be able to obtain it by supporting the project through a crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter.
