Easy Projects to Get Started with Scratch: Drawing 2D Shapes I had my first computer programming experience in ninth grade. I had just moved, and my new guidance counselor persuaded me to take a computer programming class because there were no other open electives. I was dubious. It appeared that coding was either not fun, not cool, not easy, or perhaps all three. We used a language called BASIC to learn about managing data sets, sorting lists, and computing algebraic expressions. I wasn't exactly frustrated, but I certainly wasn't hooked by line after line of green text on the solemn black screen. Using Scratch in the Classroom: Five Ideas Are your students interested in the "Maker Movement," a growing community of DIY tech enthusiasts who are applying creative skills to create everything from robots to printers using free software and Web-based tools? MIT’s Scratch lets junior programmers and aspiring "makers" ages eight and up create video animations, games, interactive stories, digital instruments and more. Instead of requiring technical coding, the free Scratch tool uses color-coded bars that are placed in an interlocking command sequence. Currently, Scratch is available for Mac, Windows and Linux via the Scratch Web site.

unicorn TSP crossing The question behind the “Traveling Salesman Problem” is basically, what’s the most efficient path through a large number of points? There are probably many important applications of this difficult mathematical problem, but the most interesting for me is line art. If you’ve been following the progress of the MakerBot Unicorn or Egg-Bot projects, you’ve already seen some incredible examples of “TSP” line art. Error - could not find Thing 4450. Error - could not find Thing 4451. About Who Supported ScratchJr?

10 Squares (The 100th SDS!) Celebrate the 100th SDS with us by creating a project with 10 squares! Create a project that contains 10 squares on the screen at a time, and 10 squares only. It could be a train driving on a track, with the train made out of 7 squares, and the tracks made out of 3. It could be an Ice-cream simulator with the ice cream made out of 5 squares, and the ice cream machine made out of the other 5 squares. The possibilities are endless! Wondering why we're making things out of 10 squares?

scratch – Shall We Learn You never know what will happen next in life. One lazy afternoon, when I was enjoying my afternoon tea, two funny yellow birds showed up at my door. They introduced themselves as Tweet and Mini Tweet. I guess they are twins, but one is much much bigger than the other. They came with questions, and, boys, did I have the answer!
