Themes for each day:
Nov 24, 2023
In the morning, we'll be developing our own mini-games on Scratch to learn & practice programming fundamentals. We will choose or design a main character and backdrop, experiment with keyboard controls to move our character around, think about different challenges or tasks to add in that our character will need to complete, and for those that want an extra challenge - include movement animations, special effects, and extra controls. The afternoon activity will be laser-cutting our main character as well as having a game expo where we can show off our creations and let friends try our games!
