What is a remix?
When a “scratcher” makes a copy of someone else’s project and midifies it to add their own ideas, the resulting project is called a “remix.” Even a minor change is a valid remix (like changing scripts or costumes) as long as the credit is given to the original project creator and others who made significant contributions to the remix.
