Year 8 – Game Design

Students will create a game based around a theme of their choice using Scratch.  Scratch is a graphical programming language specifically designed to help introduce students to coding.  It removes a lot of the complexity and uses Lego like blocks to build programs.

Students will create and program sprites, adding variables to keep track of the number of lives, score and game timer. They will also produce additional screens for elements such as game over and a congratulations screen.
