4. Add-Ons

Transcript

Congratulations on coding today’s computer science project! The fun isn’t over, though.

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

Use your creativity to see what else you can add! Check out these other projects made by CS First students to get some ideas for your own project.

To get started, click on one of the add-on choices below.

“Change Up Your Racetrack” adds a button that will change racetrack backdrops in your project. In “Costume Change,” program a keypress event to make each player’s sprite look different by changing costumes.

In the two-part add-on “Step on the Gas,” create a slider that controls how fast or slow each player drives, and change their speed depending on whether they are driving on concrete or grass. “Crashing Sounds” adds sound effects when your two players touch, or run into, each other.

In “Race Fans,” add sprites to count the start of the race and cheer for the racers.

In “Color Trail” add a colorful trail effect to the racers.

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