Thank you so much to Eoin you led the session on Saturday, I think you all enjoyed it. I think you will agree that our two Black Belt Mentors did really well leading their first session. So thank you Ruaidhrí and Eoin
Eoin did a Christmas Scene with you. Here a some screenshots of the code.
See you all on Saturday and Remember bring your own drinks!
Last week I showed you how to control and move a Sprite, this week we didn’t use any Sprites, everything happened on the Background, but we were still able to create movement.
We created a Timer, this is a piece of code that can be added to any game and is a great one to know.
Every time a the correct key was pressed, the next Background would appear.
For the first time this year we did a Broadcast. This is useful when you want one part of the code to communicate with another part of the code. We used this so that when the last letter was typed, a message was broadcast to stop the timer and display it.
This coming week is the last one before our midterm break. I am going to show you a couple of techniques for showing movement. We will use costumes for the Sprites and it will be Halloween based.
Then everyone is going to work on their own game, based on the Boo Challenge. You do not have to enter the competition if you do not want, but you will use it as your idea for you game.
Welcome to Coderdojo Athenry and the Explorers group! It was great to see so many new faces on Saturday and of course I’m always delighted to see those you are back for another year!
We just spent a short time familarising our self with Scratch and where we can find the code and some small examples od how we can use them. We will start a new game this coming week and will jump straight in using variables, loops and decision statements.
