Hi People :) just an update on the Techy Kids Show. It was the 16th Episode of the Techy Kids Show today (live) with Kids at the Ranaa Child Welfare Foundation. Four of the kids namely Asad, Danish, Musa and Fawad demonstrated how to make a Clicker and 2 player game in Scratch. Amidst electricity concerns kids were able to make the games simply working on one laptop and an internet connection. They began by sharing different uses of Scratch and what are the different functions they can do in Scratch. They were able to add sprites, change size of spites, change background, write code to move sprites in different directions, create a score variable to record score etc. Kids engagement throughout is appreciated like anything.
