Click on the Scratch icon

Your first program in a few clicks

Select a Scratch event and choose what you want Thymio to do. The blocks that interact with Thymio are in the “Thymio” category.
In this example we put our code in a “forever” loop so Scratch will continuously check if the proximity sensor detects something.

Front sensors make Thymio change color

Thymio stops at the border of the table

Example of Scratch stage, sprites and Thymio interactions

Thymio makes the sprite move when you tilt it left or right.
If the sprite touches the edge of the stage Thymio will make some noise.

Tip : you can click on a block in the code section to know its value
For example, tilt Thymio and click on the “Tilt on [left-right]” block to know its value

Scratch is a project of the Lifelong Kindergarten group of the MIT Media Lab.
