Hackers Unite! Coding & Programing: Scratch Video Sensing. Register through Vecova Rec 403-284- 2231 Ext 0

Run by Engineering For Kids Calgary Ages 7-14 yrs

What is more fun than playing an interactive video game? Writing one! Video sensing allows students to design and program their own video games and then test them by interacting with the program via webcam. In this Scratch program, students work together to create their own games, art, and musical instruments while exploring coding foundations. Get up and get moving with Engineering for Kids and Scratch: Video Sensing!

Balloon Pop
Students work together to design and program their own video game using video sensing and seven other types of programming blocks. Students build their game in stages adding variables, operators, and clones to increase difficulty and frequently test their games to improve scripting.

Musical Instruments
In this lesson, students discover how programming can help us recreate the sounds of musical instruments. Students work together to design and program their own drum set and expand their repertoire to include a piano and other percussion instruments.

Catching Game
Will the dog catch the Frisbee? How about Chef Kelvin catching his flying pancakes? Whatever the theme or character, students will have a blast as they design their very own catching game using Scratch.

Collection Game
Design a collection game using Scratch! Understand that variables and equations help as you design your own storyline. Work collaboratively to troubleshoot and improve your own game in this fun and exciting lesson!

Jump Game
Can you be quick enough to make the jump? In this class, students design their own Jump Game where they program different obstacles that their character must jump over through and beyond.
