File Type 1Scratch Project File
What is an SB file?
An SB file is a project created by Scratch, an application development platform created at MIT (the Massachusetts Institute of Technology). It contains all the project information including any imported media such as sprites, sounds, and images. SB files were replaced by .SB2 files, which are saved in the Scratch 2.0 format.
The SB file is the main file associated with MIT Scratch 1. The file is saved in the Scratch file format, which consists of code written in the Scratch programming language. Scratch project files may be used to create small games and other types of interactive programs.
Scratch was developed by the Media Lab at MIT and is primarily used by teachers and students to create animations and games. The program is available online or as an offline editor for Windows, macOS, and Linux.
NOTE: A Scratch project may be compiled as a Java archive (.JAR file), which can be run in a web browser.
