In each day of Scratch Fashion and Design you used computer science to solve difficultproblems and build interesting projects. Take a look back at all you’ve accomplishedand learned in just eight days. On your first day, you programmed a fashionstory. On day two, you created a fashion walk andused iteration, or repeat and forever loops. On day three, you created stylist tool toenvision, design or accessories on a backdrop and used events to react to interactions fromthe user. On day four, you created a fashion innovationusing conditionals. Day five, you built a fashion poll to understandthe opinions of your clubmates and used variables to track the votes.
Day six, you designed a modern store window, which required you to instantiate, or create,many different objects each with their own behavior and attributes using the "createclone" block. On day seven, you created your own fashionpattern and used functions, or custom blocks. And today, you programmed an award scene withmany of the skills and computer science concepts that you picked up along the way.
This club may be ending today, but that doesn’t mean your computer science journey has toend. You can continue to access your Scratch account and all of your Scratch projects afterthis club ends. The videos and activities you worked on are also available on the CSFirst website. You can explore any of the other available themes.
Scratch has a large community of other computer scientists who, like you, are learning andcreating with Scratch. From the Scratch website you can explore and comment on other people’screations and share your own. Scratch and computer science can also be usefultools for class projects. Consider using Scratch to create an interactive story, presentation,or game the next time you’re asked to create a school project. Even after this club isover, you can use the CS First website on your own to do another Club theme or to usethe Ongoing Learning page to find other free computer science experiences.
In High School, you may have the chance to take a computer science course. As a CS Firstclub member, you should feel prepared for whatever your next computer science experiencemay be. Believe it or not, only 30 to 40 years ago,very few people owned computers.Today, computers are everywhere. Nearly every school and workplacerelies on computers to do their job. In CS First, you took an important first step inlearning computer science, skills that, no matter your path in life, will be important.
The CS First team would like to thank you and congratulate you on all that you haveaccomplished in this club. The future will be a better place with more computer scientists,like you, understanding how to program and use technology.
