Brilliant Labs – Digital Skills – Scratch Coding

Create a Scratch game. Join Colin for a step-by-step digital learning session. Everything you need is right here and all pictures for this tutorial are in Scratch. This is a great digital learning activity for anyone who has used Scratch a little in the past and wants to take it up a notch. Visit www.scratch.mit.edu and Have fun! #MakerFun For more online learning visit www.brilliantlabs.ca

Join Wylie as he introduces viewers to Scratch. In this video you will learn how to login into Scratch, create a project and build your very first Scratch game. Visit https://scratch.mit.edu/ to begin.

In this five minute video learn how to open and create a Scratch game and create a sprite. You will learn to set the scene for this scratch game by creating backdrops and designing your sprite. This is part 1 of a 5 part video series.

In this video we learn how to code variables and take our first steps using the sprite and backgrounds built in Part 1 of this series. You will create multiple variables that will build your Eco Footprint. This is part 2 of a 5 part video series.

In this video we learn how to code if statements and make decision trees. In part 2 we a question, now we will code what the answer means. By the end of this video you will have completed creating the first ‘room’ in your Eco Footprint game. This is part 3 of a 5 part video series.

In this video we be creating a new room and additional questions for the Eco Footprint Scratch game, started in Part 1 of this video series. This video concerns ecological footprint questions in the kitchen. By the end of the video you will have completed additional if statements and decision trees for the kitchen portion of the game. This is part 4 of a 5 part video series.

In this video we will be finishing our eco footprint game we started in part 1. We will create a scene and questions about our eco footprint getting to school. By the end of the video you will have added the end backdrop and tested your new Scratch game. This is part 5 of a 5 part video series.

For today’s Digital Skill, we’ll be using Scratch to create an interactive Earth Day Public Service Announcement (PSA) to share a message about climate action or protecting the oceans. PSAs are videos created to raise awareness and change public attitudes and behaviour toward a social issue.

Today our theme concentrates on goal 14 of the UN SDGs: Life Below Water

https://www.undp.org/content/undp/en/… Healthy oceans and seas are essential to our existence.They cover 70 percent of our planet and we rely on them for food, energy and water. Yet, we have managed to do tremendous damage to these precious resources. We must protect them by eliminating pollution and overfishing and immediately start to responsibly manage and protect all marine life around the world. Goal 14 has several targets to create action to conserve and sustainably use the oceans.

Today we will create a skyline animation using the parallax effect. It is this effect that gives many of your favourite video games and animations their feeling of movement. Our character will look like they are moving through the animation, but we will really be moving background layers at different speeds to create a realistic movement effect.

Circle Packing

2 years ago

Welcome to an exploration of algorithmic art. In this Digital Skill, students will use Scratch to create an abstract piece of art that is created by code. We call this algorithmic art since your art piece will be created by an algorithm – or a set of rules. For instance can you create a Circle Packing algorithm in Scratch such that a series of circles randomly appear but never touch or overlap?

Students will want to check out our Circle Packing sample here – feel free to remix it and make it your own.
