Game-making (Scratch) with Makey Makey

Recommended Age: 9 and above

Game-Making with Scratch Programming

Participants will learn to code with Scratch, a block-based programming tool developed by the MIT Media Lab, to provide users with hands-on in programming. They will also learn key computer science concepts such as sequences, loops, conditionals and abstraction by building a game at the end of the workshop.

 

The Makey Makey is an electronic invention tool and toy that allows users to connect everyday objects to computer programs. The Makey Makey aims to cultivate a community of innovators, imbued with the culture of collaboration and co-creation, to solve real-world problems.

WHAT TO BRING

  • A laptop (PC/Mac) with charger

  • At the end of the program, students can bring back their Makey Makey set

  • A Gmail account to access and save Scratch projects

Mbot

The mBot has some of its own special Scratch blocks to help is make its way in the world. These include;

  • Making the motors run,

  • Lighting LEDs,

  • Detecting obstacles with the ultrasonic rangefinder,

  • Following lines with the line following sensor, and

  • Playing tones.

There are a heap of other blocks we can use that allow us to interact with other sensors and actuators we can add to the mbot. Here is the list of blocks available.

WHAT TO BRING

  • A laptop (PC/Mac) with charger

  • A Gmail account to access and save Scratch projects

  • Mbot will be provided during the session

* Minimum 4 to start a class
