The button on the Front Page that links to the tips page

The Tips Page helps Scratchers learn how to make a variety of projects on Scratch. It is an updated version of the Help Page. It can be reached by clicking on the "Tips" button on the navigation bar.

Things to Try

The Things to Try section is a list of project tutorials that will all link to the Scratch Project Editor when clicked. When accessing the project editor, a tutorial is brought up that will bring you through each section step by step, with some example and videos.
