A script is a collection or stack of blocks that all interlock with one another. The blocks and their order are very important, as they determine how sprites interact with each other and the backdrop. 

Sensing Block

Sensing blocks are color-coded light-blue and are used to detect different factors of a project.

Sensors Extension

Sensors Extension allows you to get reading from sensors connected to evive.

Serial Monitor

Serial Monitor allows you to both send messages from your computer to an Arduino board (over USB) and also to receive messages from the Arduino.

set cursor at () ()

The block sets the cursor at the specified coordinate in the TFT Display of evive. Origin (0,0) is at the top left corner of the screen. Positive X-direction is to right while positive Y-direction is downward. Once the cursor has moved to the specified coordinate, you can write text using that point as the reference.

set digital pin () output as ()

The block sets the digital state of the specified digital pin to either “High” or “Low”. If the output is High, the pin will be at 5V and if the output is Low the pin will be at 0V.

set PWM pin () output as ()

The block set PWM output on evive PWM pins. The user can select the output from a range of 0 to 255.  If the PWM output is 128, then half the time output will be High and for rest, the output will be Low.

slide switch () is in the state ()?

The block check takes the slide switch number (1 or 2) and state to be checked for (Up or Down) as input and returns “True” if the slide switch is in the specified state and “False” if it is not in the specified state.

Sound Block

Sound blocks are color-coded pink and are used to control sound and MIDI functions.


Sprites, either user-created, uploaded, or found in the sprites library, are the objects that perform actions in a project. While the Stage can also be programmed in a project, most projects have at least one sprite as well because only sprites can move. 

Stack Block

A Stack block is a rectangular block that is shaped to fit above and below other blocks. Stack blocks make up the majority of the blocks available in Scratch, being available in every category except Operators.
