Using Scratch 1.4 for Programming and Control
Scratch is a free visual programming language developed by the MIT Media Lab.
Scratch was created to help young people learn to think creatively, reason systematically
and work collaboratively.
I have found that some teachers struggle with this, so here is a 16 page book to
give to students so that they can follow the book and learn how to code.
All the steps are included.
You will understand how to:
Create a simple script that animates the sprite automatically
Create a script that allows the user to control the movement of the sprite using
the arrow keys
Combine the different scripts to work together on the same sprite
Make the sprite reverse direction
Edit the stage using the Paint Editor facility within Scratch
Make the sprite react to the background
Import a new sprite from the ones available within scratch
Create and edit new costumes for an existing sprite
Create a simple script that move the sprite automatically
Create variables to set the score and the countdown
Set a sprite to start in a certain position
Save your work
