Scratch's networking infrastructure, coupled with its multilingual capabilities, enabled youth to share their digital-arts creations with other youth across geographic, language, and cultural boundaries.

The skills learnt through Scratch can be applied to other basic programming languages like Python (programming language) and Java (programming language).

Scratch flexibility allows teachers to create conceptual and visual lessons and science lab assignments.
Within the social sciences, instructors can create quizzes, games and tutorials that stimulate the mind and interact with the learner.
