Scratch 3.0 Released, Raspberry Pi working on upgrade #Scratch3 #RaspberryPi @Raspberry_Pi

On 2 January, MIT released the latest version of their incredible visual programming language: Scratch 3!

Scratch 3 introduces a brand-new look and feel. The most obvious change is that the stage is now on the right-hand side; there are new paint and sound editing tools; new types of code blocks; and the blocks are now larger and easier to read.

To help you and your young learners navigate the new Scratch 3 interface, the Raspberry Pi team has created a free, printable Scratch 3 poster (PDF).

Scratch 3 on Pi

At the moment, there is no offline, installable version of Scratch 3 for Raspberry Pi. Rest assured that this is something the Raspberry Pi team are working on!

The creation of Scratch 3 for Raspberry Pi will be a two-step process: first they’ll support MIT with the optimisation of Scratch 3 to make sure it delivers the best performance possible on a range of devices; once that work is complete, they’ll create an offline build of Scratch 3 for Raspberry Pi, including new extensions for the GPIO pins and the Sense HAT.
