PITCH YOUR PASSION
Students will build a project about an idea, activity, item, or cause they feel strongly about.
- Create an animated project that emphasizes an interest or issue they want others to care about.
- Use event blocks (like “when this sprite clicked”) to trigger a series of code.
- Sequence at least 3 “say” blocks to tell others about the issue or cause.
- Use motion blocks (like “glide to X Y“) and sounds to get their audience’s attention.
- Use conditional statements (like “if-then else”) to engage with the audience.
Computer Science Topics Covered
- Parallelism: The process of events happening at the same time, either independently or interdependently.
- Debugging: The process of identifying and fixing error(s) in a program when it is not functioning as expected.
- Control structures: Sections of code that order the direction or flow of how a program functions. The control structure in this lesson is focused on loops.
