Raspberry Pi 4 and Scratch 3 Desktop

Scratch 3 is a major upgrade to the hugely popular coding platform.

Version 3 has been completely rewritten to work in any modern HTML 5 browser and runs on most PCs and laptops. But there are also standalone Windows and Mac Desktop versions.

Since the January release The Raspberry Pi Foundation has been hard at work to create a Scratch 3 Desktop standalone version. However, to run the Desktop version you'll need plenty of processing power and at least 2GB of RAM.

Fortunately, with the new Raspberry Pi 4, along with the Raspbian 'Buster' operating system, there's now a Raspberry Pi platform to satisfy these processing and RAM demands.

With Pi 4 you can access new Scratch 3 Desktop functionality, including GPIO support, Sense HAT support plus promised extension support for micro:bit and LEGO®.

To install Scratch 3 on the Pi 4 open a terminal window, then type in and run the following commands:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install scratch3
