Adding sprites to your project as supporters can inspire, motivate, or excite your audience.

Add supporters to share your enthusiasm about your interests to help others understand why you care.

Check out these examples of different characters showing their support.

Start by adding a new sprite.

Think about what makes your interest, activity, idea, or cause special.

Choose a sprite that can help share that message.

Program your new sprite to speak.

What could this new sprite say about your interest?

Maybe it’s how your idea helps them… Maybe you want your sprite to encourage others to try it out...

Or what you love about your passion.

Write something that makes sense for your project.

Add a “when this sprite clicked” block from the events menu to make your supporter speak when it’s clicked.

Add as many supporters and objects as you’d like to your program to engage your audience.

To instruct others to click the sprites to learn more, program the main character to tell the audience what to do using a “say” block.
