Arduino and Raspberry Pi

Hi scratchers! I was wondering if we could add more to the extensions. I know that there is already pico board and some lego thing, but I was wondering if the Arduino and Raspberry Pi would be compatible with scratch. I'm not sure how it would be, because I don't know much about them yet, but I'm getting one soon, and I just wondered.

Aw man, my scratch blocks didn't work. Also, where did that end block come from?

Raspberry Pi is compatible with Scratch. If you have a RPi and use Rasbian Stretch then Scratch 1.4 and Scratch 2 come preinstalled. Then you have access to the GPIO pins on your raspberry pi.

There is an extension for GPIO. I have introduced that to the students at my school using Scratch to programming GPIO pins of the RPi.
