We have a kids hackathon on April 28th, but it could be that we will only have a local wi-fi available, and no internet access (for reasons). Could we use Scratch 2.0 under those circumstances?
Anyway, the kids coudn’t save their projects as long as no new memberships are accepted. Well, would appreciate your answers anyway! uể oải

At this time, there is no offline or downloadable version of EdScratch in development. As such, you do require an internet connection to use EdScratch.
EdScratch requires the code you program in the environment to be compiled in order to be downloaded into the Edison robot. To ensure the compiler works correctly across all platforms and keep costs such that we can deliver EdScratch at no charge, delivering through an online solution is the best option for EdScratch. This online solution also enables us to ensure that we are able to provide updates and improvements into the live system for all users on an ongoing basis.
To get updates on the Edison products I recommend signing up to our newsletter so that you hear first.

Another related suggestion- could we download a wav or mp3 file to play the program- so that we could program the robot for different functions if we are in a location that does not have internet? We are going to a robotics event and would like to have our robot run a couple different programs. I may try this on my own, but offering it as a suggestion to help others as well with this issue.
