This introduction to programming in Scratch uses a trivial example to demonstrate simple audio and animation. It is written for Scratch 1.4 but can be easily adapted for later versions.
This practical guide to creating a simple game is aimed at those new to programming with Scratch 1.4 or above. It develops a basic Frogger game and introduces collision detection, a key element of many games.
This game-writing activity using Scratch will bring back youthful memories for some! It provides easy-to-follow instructions on how to recreate the memory game Simon on-screen. It includes reusable game elements such as score keeping and audio generation.
Combining some fundamental physics with trigonometry and computer programming, this guide helps students to create a simulation of the projectile motion of a cannon ball. The concepts are all briefly explained, and the program introduces some clever mathematics as well as game elements, such as collision detection...
An article about using the BBC Micro:bit to control a £25 Kitronic self-assembly buggy. The assembled kit makes a line-following buggy. The micro:bit can be used just to control the motion, after calibration, of the buggy as a floor trutle. It can also use the on-board accelerometer sensor to convert it into a "...
