Course Outline

Focus: Getting familiar with Scratch interface and basic programming concepts.

Important Terms:

  • Scratch: A visual programming language developed by MIT Media Lab designed to introduce coding concepts to beginners.
  • Sprite: A character or object in Scratch projects that can perform actions.
  • Script: A collection of blocks in Scratch that controls the behaviour of sprites.
  • Outcome: Learners will create a simple project manipulating sprites to move and interact.

Focus: Exploring how to control sprite motion and add sound.

Important Terms:

  • Coordinates: X and Y values that determine a sprite’s position on the stage.
  • Loop: A programming construct that repeats a block of code multiple times.
  • Outcome: Create a musical project where sprites move in patterns and play sounds.

Focus: Understanding how to change the appearance of sprites and use events to control the flow of a project.

Important Terms:

  • Broadcast: Sending a message that triggers scripts in sprites.
  • Event: An action that causes something to happen in the project.
  • Outcome: Develop an interactive story where characters change appearance and respond to user input.

Focus: Learning to use sensing blocks and operators for more interactive projects.

Important Terms:

  • Sensing: Blocks that detect various factors like sprite positions, user input, etc.
  • Operators: Blocks that perform mathematical and logical operations.
  • Outcome: Create a simple game that reacts to the user’s input and keeps score.

Focus: Introduction to variables for storing information and basic game design principles.

Important Terms:

  • Variable: A storage location named by an identifier containing quantitative information.
  • Game Design: The art of applying design and aesthetics to create a game.
  • Outcome: Design a game that uses variables to track points and levels.

Focus: Enhancing user interaction through more complex scripts and game mechanics.

Important Terms:

  • Conditional Statements: Blocks that perform different actions based on conditions.
  • Feedback Loop: A mechanism to provide users with feedback on their actions.
  • Outcome: Develop a game with different levels of difficulty and immediate feedback on actions.

Focus: Applying learned skills to start a final project, with guidance and brainstorming.

Outcome: Begin development on a final project incorporating all the learned concepts.

Focus: Finalizing projects and presenting them to the group.

Outcome: Complete a final project demonstrating the skills acquired throughout the course. Share projects with the group for feedback and celebration.
