Option 3

scratchCode Remix

As part of your backpack play this week, use the code you were introduced to in the workshop to try out some new things.


Some ideas to help you get started:

  1. Try a new component. Try hooking up a motor or LED that you haven’t used before.
  2. Remix the Scratch code you started in the workshop. Try to change the speed of the motor or blinking of lights. Can you make two things run in the same program?
  3. Using the camera in your backpack, take photos or video of the work you do together!
  4. Save your program on your laptop in a folder on your desktop.
