4. Add-Ons

Transcript

Congratulations on coding today’s computer science project!

The fun isn’t over, though.

This screencast will explain the add-ons you can choose to customize your project.

To get started, simply click on one of the add-on choices after you watch this video.

In “Add a Soundtrack” you’ll add music to run in the background of your project.

“Changing Backdrops and Costumes” shows you how to add different scenes to your story.

“Changing Looks with Code” describes lots of things looks blocks can do - dance and change colors, for example.

“Move Around the stage” describes ways to make sprites move.

“Animate” explains the tools to create new costumes for your sprite, then the code to animate them.

“Secret Password” protects your story.

People will have to type a password before it starts.

Take some time to explore the add-ons that interest you.

If you want to continue to create and explore after today’s club is over, you can access Scratch and CS First from any computer that has access to the internet.

Have fun creating, customizing, and making this project your own!
