End-of-term: Term 1, 2018

Course: Scratch – Space and Exploration

 

Asteroid Smash (challenging)

Use the arrow keys to control the movement of the rocketship. Press space key to shoot at the asteroids.

 

We learn to:

  • Control sprite movements in a different way
  • Use clones to make our code more efficient
  • Create a “You Win” screen when the player wins
  • Use three different variables in this project: XSpeed, YSpeed, AsteroidCount

The XSpeed and YSpeed variables give the asteroids a random speed in both directions (X & Y). The AsteroidCount variable counts how many asteroids the player has hit.

Not Exactly Space Invaders (challenging)

This game was inspired by the original Space Invaders game.

 

We learn to:

  • Use XY coordinates
  • Create clones to make our code more efficient
  • Use variables to store the XY coordinates of one object, so that it can be followed by other objects
  • Animate an explosion by drawing our own explosion costume
  • Create a “You Win” screen
  • Create a “Game Over” screen

In Week 7, students made their own project with the guidance of our tutors.

 

Demo Day

Week 8 is Demo Day, students get time to finish their projects and then present their projects in front of our parent and student audience.
