In today's project, you used an important computer science concept - creating objectsor cloning - to fill a storefront window with moving sprites.
With a small amount of code, you were able to create many sprites with different sizes,speeds, and movement which made each cloned sprite unique.
Computer scientists build and program robots to provide physical services to people, andcompanionship. Robots are being programmed with sophisticated voice recognition abilitiesso that they can even detect a person's mood by the tone of their voice.
Check out this clip about a robot going to space as a companion to the astronautsJapanese robot records conversations and will play a role in some missions.
The scientists say the robot, which can also recognize emotions, will hopefully keep theastronauts company.
[Japanese] I wanted to give "Kirobo" and "Mirata" a sense of compassion in their communicationwith each other, and the ability to listen to the other person.
Mirata is Kirobo's robot twin back on planet Earth. Here's what the insightful humanoidhad to say.
Computer science creates programs and tools that have a huge impact on our social lives- from the creation of social sites like twitter and facebook that bring people together toinvention like furbys or robots designed for companionship and fun. All of these productsrequire computer scientists like you to write the code that makes them work.
In the next club session, you will create your own pattern and envision your patternas part of products like t-shirts, dresses, and wallpaper.
Remember you can always use the Scratch website from any computer with an internet connectionnow or even after this club has ended. Your Scratch username is yours to keep and we atCS First hope that you'll continue to build awesome Scratch creations even after thisclub is over. While you’re waiting for your clubmatesto finish the wrap-up, take a moment to write a shout-out to a guru or club mate who helpedyou today. Remember to include on the shout-out a "To" line to indicate who the shoutout isfor. Until next time-- have fun creating and coding.
