Créer de la musique est une excellente façon d'explorer, de jouer et de s'amuser. Elle est universelle et tout le monde peut bénéficier de l'exploration et du jeu musical.

Aujourd'hui, nous allons apprendre à coder de manière créative en composant ou en interprétant de la musique dans une gamme incroyable de styles à l'aide d'un logiciel libre appelé Sonic pi.

Ordinateur et accès à Internet, programme Sonic Pi

Learn how to code the Fibonacci sequence with Scratch! How can you change the code to make different patterns? Can you replicate another pattern from nature?

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.

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to create your own unique piece of music? What emotions or themes will your music send to others?

In today's digital skill, we will create a piece of music with new and different sounds in whatever style you choose. Many different effects can be used and the choices of sounds, sequences, amplitudes and variances will create a unique piece that you can share with friends and family.

This digital skill meets the requirements of the Brilliant Labs Multi media badge.

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.




For today's Digital Skill, we will explore the benefits of using a virtual prototyping space (TinkerCAD Circuits) for complex circuits like the one found inside the child's telephone toy in this intro. Following this overview of why this toy telephone is being deconstructed, head over to this LINK HERE so my colleague John can take you through how to get started with TinkerCAD Circuits.


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.




Diagrams.net Orientation Part 2/5 In this activity, we will be learning to use draw.io to create a purpose-built flowchart for decision-making. This can then be used to help assess the sustainability of zoos or nature preserves. A flowchart can aid in the decision-making and assessment process. This will start with design, revision, prototype, test and revision of the flowchart.


Partie 3/5 Dans cette activité, nous apprendrons à utiliser draw.io pour créer un organigramme spécifique pour la prise de décision. Celui-ci peut ensuite être utilisé pour aider à évaluer la durabilité des zoos ou des réserves naturelles. Un organigramme peut faciliter le processus de décision et d'évaluation. Ceci commencera avec la conception, la révision, le prototype, le test et la révision de l'organigramme.

Become a global Citizen Scientist! Make your own local environmental observations, in particular cloud cover, that can compliment NASA satellite observations. Why are clouds important? How can we help monitor cloud conditions? In this digital skill, we will use the Globe Observer App to help answer these questions and become a Citizen Scientist.

Join the GLOBE observer App community to help collect scientific data for NASA, students and other scientists worldwide.
