Global Codeathon Scratch Tutorials

Speed RacerThe Global Codeathon brings together students from numerous schools around the world for a day of Scratch coding, learning, and sharing.

In preparation, I have created a couple of tutorials aimed and the relative beginner.  Each project has a video component and an accompanying handout.  The video shows in step-by-step fashion how to create each project, while the handout shows the completed scripts.

Project 1: Speed Racer

In this project, students will create a car that can race around a track using the arrow keys. They are racing against one or more computer-controlled cars.

Project 2: Lunar Lander

In this project, students will create a spaceship trapped on a planet than can fly around from landing pad to landing pad using the arrow keys. Touching the walls results in a broken spaceship and starting the level over.
