ScratchMaths is a national project funded by the Educational Endowment Foundation (EEF) which is aiming to establish the impact of learning computer programming on the mathematics performance of pupils at Key Stage 2. As part of the project over 100 schools across the country will trial a new Y5/6 computing curriculum based around the free online programming environment Scratch, developed by the MIT Media Lab.

The ScratchMaths project is led by an experienced team based at the UCL Knowledge Lab part of the UCL Institute of Education and will be independently evaluated by a team of experts from Sheffield Hallam University. The projects runs from 2014-2017 and if successful will subsequently be rolled out in many more across the country.
