Like somebody said, there are versions of flash for Android, so flash can (more or less awkwardly) work on ARM.
No, there is currently no way.

HTML5 is supposed to be implemented soon (of two years late...) but what in the meantime?
I'm not sure what you would fork; since there is no Flash for Pi forking whatever Flash program/file wouldn't do much good.
The Scratch provided on the standard Raspbian is now a very much faster, modernised code base that lives on top of the latest Squeak. It gets faster all the time as I work on it. It runs on any machine that runs a recent Squeak. All you have to do is copy the .image file to your machine and run it on any of the modern Squeak VMs - interpreter, stack or cog. Sometime soon it'll even run on Spur.

So make a good case to Eben and the foundation education team and they'll consider whether to get me to extend the system. It's just programming.

As mentioned above - Scratch 1.4 runs on any machine already, so they can run on a pi, a mac, a pc, whatever at home or at school. BYOB also runs ok on a PI, though it requires slightly more fiddly setup. A working-for-pi version is at https://copy.com/TUOG8xOMUmzeWFpk
