Thanks again for all the wonderful ideas and inspiration last week. Our meeting gave me a much needed boost of energy heading into the summer. Today I made two 'sample' Scratch Programs. A very basic one following the Introduction to Animation directions, and a Magic 8 Ball inspired by Janet's project.
The basic one I am thinking of running with our 6-12 year old crowd. If we make it past the basics, then I am thinking of introducing the 'sound' tab.
The Magic 8 Ball may be incorporated into our Teen Tech Camp Curriculum. I love the way it introduces Variables, Random Numbers, and Broadcasting.
