Make a tutorial in Scratch
You’ve probably already used some tutorials made in Scratch to help you learn how to do something in Scratch. You can find many tutorial projects in Scratch that explain some concept or how to do something in Scratch. Your mission for the next 3 weeks is to make a tutorial to teach a Scratch concept to other kids. You can design the tutorial to teach an advanced concept to the other kids in your Scratch group or you can design a tutorial to teach a more basic concept to beginner Scratchers – it’s up to you what topic you choose to make a tutorial about.
Here are some nice examples of tutorials people have made on Scratch:
Raspberry Pi (with Microcontrollers and other cool stuff)
A collaborative group exploring how computers can interact with the outside world through a range of sensors and controllers. Primarily we’ll be using the Raspberry Pi (http://raspberrypi.org) computer in conjunction with Arduinos (http://arduino.cc) and along the way we’ll learn about Python, C and C++ programming, digital and analogue electronics and about working together.
