Scratch Challenge

Dance project

today we were learning how to make a sprite dance. because we had no idea how to make a sprite dance we were given a tutorial to help us figure it out. I chose a polar bear to dance because it looked cute. you had to choose a sprite with 2 costumes because it has to have 2 costumes or the sprite cant dance. the sprite dances by switching costumes like this. press the linke to see what I did.

I also added some flps in to mix things up.

10 block challenge

the 10 block challenge was were we were given 10 blocks and we had to make a program with it using all of the blocks. here are all of the blocks. I first put all of the blocks in the programing part so I could clearly see all of the blocks I have to use. I was wondering what to make and how to make it but then I just started putting blocks together and making a program that makes sense. this is how my program turned out.

build a band

today in scratch we were doing a challenge called build a band. in build a band we had to put sprites on the page like an instrument or singer a saxophone for example and make it so that when you click the saxophone it would make a sound. when you clicked my spite I made it switch costume or grow larger so you know with sprite you have clicked.  it was challenging in some parts because some of the sounds you wanted wasn’t downloaded onto scratch so you had to download it using MP3 witch would download music. it was my first time using MP3 so I had a couple of friends to help me do it. this is what some of my sprites looked like.

it’s alive

in scratch we did another challenge called it’s alive in it’s alive you had to choose a sprite and try to make it look like it’s alive by alive I mean like a bird flying. to do that you needed to have a sprite with a couple costumes. to make it look like it’s flying you have to choose the perfect speed for it to switch costumes otherwise it wouldn’t look like it’s alive. it was challenging to make my sprite turn around though because you had to make new costumes and say when touching edge switch to 4 costume. this is what it looks like when it is completed.

Robotics challenges

session 1

today we started working on robotics challenges. our first challenge was to make our robot go along a black line. at first I had no clue how to make our robot go along a black line. but then Mr Colbet showed everyone the program we got to use a new brick called a comment brick and you just write a sentence for the robot to do like when sees black turn right. this is what the brick looks like.

session 2

next we had to made our robot go around a black line but it wasn’t just eny black line it was a black line in the shape of a oval. I thought I would have to change my program a bit so I had a think a I couldn’t think of anything. but then I realised you don’t have to change it at all  because it will still just follow the line. Here is my program.
