Scratch Game Design 102

This course helps students advance their game design skills. They complete BeatBot Challenge by making the robot moonwalk and respond to different kinds of messages. Then they build Paint Racer, a pen-drawing game, and learn about angles, color, direction, and positioning. Upon completing this course, students will have a good understanding of a number of intermediate programming concepts such as conditional statements, messaging, timers, random numbers, and positioning using x- and y-coordinates.

Topics Covered: Draw geometric patterns using pen-based drawing primitives to manipulate angles, direction, sizes, and color. Learn about timers, random numbers, interactions between objects, and special effects.
