The creating continues...

A couple weeks ago, students were introduced to coding using Scratch 2.0. As makers, they've paired Scratch with Makey Makey, which allows students to create physical objects that can send commands to a computer. Currently, students are working together on creating an Indiana Jones-themed game. The plan is that those who play the game will need to figure out the floor plan that won't harm their scratch sprite so that they can retrieve an idol. Check out the pictures below to see how it's going!

Getting a feel for how to code using Scratch and how the software works with Makey Makey.

Laying the tiles for our game floor. 

Wiring the Makey Makey so that it corresponds with our strands of code. 

Using tin foil to construct wires that will connect our floor tiles to the Makey Makey.
