Week 3 – Scratch Beginners – Ghostcatcher

Hello Everyone

Great to see so many of you there on Saturday, 85 Ninjas!. Hope you had a good time. And a special welcome to our new Ninjas.

This week we created a Ghostcatcher game. We used the paint editor in Scratch for the first time. As I said on Saturday, It makes things easier if you think in shapes.


Using the code we have learned so far, we moved the Ghostcatcher with the mouse and the Ghosts randomly. We also added sounded and score.


For those of you who would like to add more complexity, I have a couple of ideas at the end of the notes. Give it a go and if you need any help, just ask one of the mentors at the beginning of the next session.

From next week the Scratch Beginners Group will be given by Julie. I won’t be too far away, so you will see me around! We have a new session this year called Unity. It is a games platform and we expect a large number of the kids will take it so I am going to help out in that room with Kieran.

A big THANK YOU to Julie for taking over for me.

Here are this weeks notes in PDF. CDA-S5-Week_03-Ghostcatcher.pdf
