In this program, our participants will learn the basics of computer science and coding, digging into the Scratch source code and building games that remind us pf the old video game nostalgia school.
Participants will create, explore, and put their problem-solving skills to the test by creating more complex games.
The course makes programming ideas like variables, flow control, and subroutines easy to assimilate. Stuffed with thoughts for games that children will be glad to show, this is the ideal initial step for the aspiring developer.
Scratch is the uncontrollably prominent educational programming language utilized by millions of first-time students in classrooms and homes around the world. By dragging together beautiful blocks of code, children can learn programming ideas and make cool games and animations.
Some examples of games we will build this class:
Tetris is our take on one of the most addictive games ever. The game consists of over 100 lines of code and is divided into four lessons. Nonetheless, the outcome is really worth the effort!
Race is a simple racing game in which one or two players race against the clock on an oval track. The longer the vehicle stays away from the track edge, the greater speed it gains. The game features color detection mechanism to keep track of the vehicles, as well as variables to save the score and modify the speed of the vehicles. The exercise consists of three lessons, however, the third lesson, which introduces a multi-player version of the game, is optional.
The Scratch version of this game has every essential feature of the immensely popular Snake for Nokia cell phones. The goal remains the same: to eat as many “snacks” as possible, without running into walls or into the snake’s own tail.
In the Falling Bricks game, the player controls the basket with a computer mouse and tries to catch as many falling LEGO bricks as possible.
