This is great! My concern though is the jump from the visual interface of Scratch to coding is a large one. I actually wrote an article a few weeks ago reflecting on the impact BASIC had on me: https://hackernoon.com/basic-inspired-a-generation-of-technologists-wha…. I wonder if there is something after Scratch that helps bridge that gap?
Also, the point about Scratch being packaged with the Raspberry Pi is the most cogent. What made both BASIC and Logo work was that they were everywhere and therefore extremely accessible.
