The Scratch Foundation was founded in 2013 as the Code-to-Learn Foundation by Mitchel Resnick, Professor of Learning Research at the MIT Media Lab, and David Siegel, Co-Founder and Co-Chairman of the investment management firm Two Sigma. Mitch and David first met as graduate students in computer science at MIT in the 1980s, and reconnected 25 years later when David's son learned to program with Scratch, a visual programming language developed by Mitch's research group at the MIT Media Lab.

In 2015, Code-to-Learn Foundation transitioned officially to the Scratch Foundation to reflect the organization's specific focus on Scratch and its dynamic ecosystem of interacting projects (Scratch, ScratchJr, ScratchEd) and events (Scratch Day, Scratch Conference, Scratch Educator Meetups). 


The Scratch Foundation wordmark is to be displayed in its entirety on a solid background (avoid mid-tone or strongly colored backgrounds). The logo should not be displayed in parts, with color variations, or with other elements superimposed on top of the logo.
