Go to Newcomers Activities

Scratch – Guided

NOTE: Make sure your computer has sound that works because you will need to listen to instructions in videos. If the sound is not working switch to a different computer if one is available.

Musical Art

In this activity you will create a colorful collage by programming a repeating pattern. Then, you will make the colors in the collage play a sound when the mouse touches them.

After you complete the basic project try to complete all the add-ons to improve and customise the project and make it your own.

Scratch – Freeform

We’ll have a chat about what you want to work on for the next few weeks. One option is to carry on with the RPG projects from last term as these were becoming quite interesting but mostly unfinished.
