"Scratch for Robots" based on Scratch 2.0


#1

Hi there

is there any intention to bring out “Scratch for Robots” based on Scratch 2.0 or even 3.0?
Problem is, we are working on a pilot project with 3rd to 6th grade pupils. They’ve created racecar game controled by cursor keys with scratch.mit.edu-version. Now the kids want to pimp up this game by controlling it by rotary (wheel) and ultrasonic (accelerator) over GrovePi. Import files with extension *.sb2 to “Scratch for Robots” leading in a error.
Do you have any ideas for solve this or do a work around?

Best regards,

Martin

Hello @m.albisser
We already have support for Scratch 2 and GrovePi although we never did officially switch to it, as it is quite slow on the Pi.
If you go to /home/pi/dexter/GrovePi/Software/Scratch/ you will find a script called launch_scratch2.sh.

you can launch that script by typing bash launch_scratch2.sh in a terminal window (when in the above folder).

Hope this helps.

PS. As for Scratch3, we’re still looking into it. No decision made for now.
