Congratulations on coding today’s computer science project! But the fun isn’t over!
Computer scientists often continue to work on projects after the basic programming isin place, to make them more original and interesting. Now, you get the chance to do the same withadd-ons. This screencast will explain the add-ons you can choose to customize your project.
Just like in the main screencasts for this project, watch the screencast first to learnhow to build the add-on, then try programming it on your own. To get started, simply clickon one of the add-on choices after you watch this screencast.
In “Finish Line Cheer,” program a sound to play if the player touches the finish line.
Add a second player to the game in “Play with a Friend.”
Increase the difficulty in “Challenge a Friend,” as you program a second playerthat can control the enemies. In “Shrinking Finish Line,” program thefinish line to get smaller as the player scores more points.
Create a sprite that, when touched, gives the player extra points in “Bonus Points!”
In “Changing Level Design,” program the backdrop to change every time the player scores5 points.
Before you start playing around with these add-ons, though, save a copy of your base project.
Computer scientists often save copies of their projects before they tinker with them,to ensure that they can always return to a working version of their code. To save a copy,go to “file” and select “save as a copy.”
Once you have done that, 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 accessScratch and CS First from any computer that has access to the internet. Have fun creating,customizing, and making this project your own!
