Algemene vragen

Wat is Scratch en wat kan ik er mee?
With the Scratch programming language and online community, you can create your own interactive stories, games, and animations — and share your creations with others around the world. As young people create and share Scratch projects, they learn to think creatively, reason systematically, and work collaboratively. To learn more about Scratch, see the About Scratch page.

Who uses Scratch?
Scratch is used by people from all backgrounds, in all countries around the world, in all types of settings — homes, schools, libraries, museums, and more. Scratch is designed especially for young people ages 8 to 16, but people of all ages create and share with Scratch. Younger children may want to try ScratchJr, a simplified version of Scratch designed for ages 5 to 7.
Wat zijn de vereiste systeemeigenschappen voor Scratch?
Scratch will run in most current web browsers on desktops, laptops and tablets. You can view projects on mobile phones, but currently you are not able to create or edit projects on phones. Below is the list of officially supported browsers.


  • Chrome (63+)
  • Edge (15+)
  • Firefox (57+)
  • Safari (11+)
  • Internet Explorer is NOT supported.


  • Mobile Chrome (62+)
  • Mobile Safari (11+)
  • If your computer doesn’t meet these requirements, you can try the Scratch Desktop editor (see next item in FAQ).
  • If you encounter a WebGL error, try a different browser.
  • On tablets, there is currently not a way to use “key pressed” blocks or right-click context menus.
Is er een downloadbare versie, zodat ik projecten offline kan creëren en bekijken?
The Scratch Desktop editor allows you to create Scratch projects without an internet connection. You can download Scratch Desktop from the website. This was previously called the Scratch Offline editor.
Kan ik projecten – die gemaakt zijn met oudere versies van Scratch – uploaden naar deze website?
Yes: You can share or upload projects made with earlier versions of Scratch, and they will be visible and playable. (However, you can’t download projects made with or edited in later versions of Scratch and open them in earlier versions. For example, you can’t open a Scratch 3.0 project in the desktop version of Scratch 2.0, because Scratch 2.0 doesn’t know how to read the .sb3 project file format.)
