Introduction to Scratch and Sensing the World       

 

This practical session aims to give an introduction to Scratch, and the use of Scratch with Sensor Boards (Picoboards).    It combines two Technology Volunteer workshops:  Programming by Stealth, Sensing Our World.  These workshops are normally run by students and staff from Warwick University in local primary and secondary schools.  (http://go.warwick.ac.uk/techvolunteers)

 

Programming By Stealth

Scratch enables the creation of stories, games and animations by clipping blocks together to complete tasks. Blocks clip together like the pieces in a jigsaw, so only pieces of the right type can be attached together. Using Scratch, children can develop their programming skills in a fun and exciting way, without realising it. Truly, programming by stealth.

 

Sensing Our World

The Scratch Sensorboard (Picoboard) allows Scratch projects to sense and respond to events in the real world. In everyday life we make frequent use of high tech devices that use sensors, and rarely stop to consider how they work.  The sensorboards gives children the opportunity to explore the relationship between hardware and software and allows them to create their own interactions.  Characters (sprites) in Scratch can respond to different levels of light and sound.

 

 

 

ALL ARE WELCOME

 

We look forward to seeing you.
