Introducing Scratch Lab!

Before the Scratch Team decides if blocks are a good fit for the Scratch editor, we consider the exciting, creative, and surprising ways Scratchers use them. We wanted to create a new space where everyone could try out new features we’re considering adding to Scratch. That’s why we’re so excited to announce Scratch Lab, a place for you to try out experimental blocks that open up new creative possibilities!

Scratch Lab kicks off with two new features:

Animated Text blocks let you animate and change the colors and fonts of text in your project.
With these blocks, you can try things like:
  • Telling a story
  • Adding a score to a game
  • Animating a poem


Face Sensing blocks let you snap sprites to a video image of your face.
With these blocks, you can try things like:
  • Creating a funny costume
  • Controlling a game with your face
  • Pressing buttons with your mouth


Scratch Lab is a space for our team to tinker, test, and play with new ideas. But most importantly, Scratch Lab is a space for you! We’d love to hear what you think with the feedback forms on the Scratch Lab website. Have fun with these experimental features, and stay tuned to find out what’s next for Scratch Lab!

I have a question, where will scratchers find out about this other than the announcement?

These are some amazing blocks!

  • My name is SaitamaGTOPM, and I am from Argentina, though I moved to the U.S. Also, I am a girl.
  • I lack life skills. I can legit be looking for a shirt and pass by it 10 times without noticing it.
  • I don't understand why people think Roblox in general is cringe. There are actually good games in Roblox, like RoBeats, Bee Swarm, and TPS: Street Soccer.
  • My favorite school subject is World History, and my favorite elective is Public Speaking.


How is he here.

Also, yay, 1000 posts! *Insert sad confetti*
