      • Iterative Game Design Process
    • Be able to navigate the Scratch programming language and create simple programs in it.
  • After participating in Game Tech, Part II:
    • Understand how a computer program works
    • Understand computer programming concepts
      • Such as conditional statements (if…then), loops, variables, boolean logic (and, or, not)
  • Create a simple game in Scratch
finding the program
Finding the Program

using the program materials
Using the Program Materials
  • Choose the project to work on
    • The Super Avenger game is easier and takes less time to program
  • Print out the Member Guide for the project
    • Must be printed in COLOR!
    • 1 guide for each participant
      • Guides can be reused!
  • Copy project files to each computer
    • Make sure Scratch is installed
running the program
Running the Program
  • Familiarize your members with Scratch
    • Use Game Tech, Part I
    • Show Video #1
  • General outline
    • Show the appropriate video
    • Members complete the appropriate section of programming
running the program1
Running the Program
  • Some programming alternatives
    • Have the members works in groups of two to reproduce the game
      • Easier for members to keep track of where they are on the page
      • Make sure members rotate responsibilities
    • Group programming
      • Each member of the group works on a different section of the program
      • Members then work together to bring all the pieces together using “Import Project” or exporting the Sprite and dragging the exported file into a new Scratch project
      • Great for teaching how software is actually written today!
what s next
What’s Next?
  • New Game Tech Category in the Digital Arts Festival!
