A mockup of a microworld project.

At the 2016 Scratch Conference, the Scratch Team announced plans for a project named microworlds. The name "microworld" comes from combining "micro" and "world", which symbolizes a world that teaches powerful ideas, yet having a limited scope. Interest-based microworlds are microworlds aimed at a specific interest or goal, like animation.

A Scratch microworld has a limited palette of blocks, to reduce the number of blocks a Scratcher has to dig through.

August 2017 @CeeBee and @SpeakVisually presented implementation of Microworlds at Scratch2017BUD, the international Scratch conference in Budapest, Hungary.
