New Scratch Game booklet

We have a new improved and updated Scratch Game booklet for Scratch 2.0. Kelley Meister, and instructor at the Science Museum just reviewed and revised the new edition! The booklet is a printable pdf (in color or b/w) you can give out to your Scratchers to help support the game design process. We've found this is a great way to design and develop ideas into games, and to take notes throughout the development process.

Three updated templates

Hi all,

Cynthia, Sabrina, Jen and myself have been working on our template that we will be using for the documents generated by the project. Here are three working docs. These include the IMLS attributions.

I'm attaching them as pdf's but they are all MS Word docs in the .doc form or .docx. We'll take a look at them in our final meeting in Minneapolis as well.

A simple 2-page intro to Scratch:…

Whew! that was something: Science Museum Scratch Day 2010!

We hosted about 12 scratch workshops this day! We had about 80 family participants ( we sold out the sessions) throughout the day. We tried some Media Mashup -created programming.... Magic 8Ball - thanks Janet!

And even gave away 6 Scratchday computers with Ubuntu operating system on them - provided by a local group of FreeGeekers! ( you would have been proud, Hillary)

- volunteers galore!

All in all it was a very nice day...… Continue

This is the code that baffled me.
This was my meager attempt. It's really buggy and lags a whole lot. It didn't do that in Scratch, just on the web.
Thanks so much!

Let's see, I have made a Simple Pong game and a trial BreakOut game. My second attempt, BreakOut, has loads of lag and bugs. It doesn't seem to work consistently, while looking for a sample project that plays with more fluidity, I stimbled upon one titled Brick-Fu. When I downloaded the code, I thought it difficult to understand (much less emulate or troublshoot). It's mostly Variables and Numbers. I have a teen who is really into game making (FlimFlamJJ). Last week I was able to help him troubleshoot a "wrap-around" problem using Numbers. This week he says that he wants to work on a Break Out game. :) So, I'm essentially trying to learn before he comes into the library with questions on the 28th.
Thanks, Hillary
p.s. I'll get him to post his efforts and then send a link to the .ning community as you suggested earlier.

Hi Keith, I was wondering if you knew a good way that I could increase my understanding of both the Variables menu and Numbers functions in Scratch? I've gone through all the tutorials on and found those very helpful. ...just wanting a little more.

Thanks for the doc. Looks like IT is gonna have the mobile lab equipped by the next gaming event 3/3, so Scratch will be making it's debut here. Woohoo!

Hi, Keith. It went pretty well- having Cynthia as my wing man was HUGELY helpful. It was better received than any of the previous Scratch programs I've hosted, which is encouraging. I'm off today but I'll post more Saturday or Monday.

Thanks Keith. An IT person has been assigned to teh project and he is supoosed to contact me on Tuesday. Hopefully it will be up and running soon. Has a curriclum of any sort been posted yet? I believe Cynthia posted the greeting card how to but I was expecting mroe resources of that sort. Thanks again.

I'm glad that Ning is working out for you - it looks great! I'm also glad to hear that you're excited about Scratch Day. We'll be sending you a message about it on Sunday, and I'd love to get your thoughts on it.
