In each day of Scratch Games you have used computer science to solve difficult problems.
Take a look back at all you’ve accomplished and learned in just eight days.
On your first day, you shared about a game that interests you.
On day two, you created a racing game with events and “repeat” blocks.
On day three, you created a maze game and used if statements for the first time.
On day four, you explored and created a platform game, one of the most popular genres of earlyvideo games. Day five, you created a chaser game that introducedthe timer variable. Day six, you created a launcher game, whichrequired the use of variables. On day seven, you created a role playing game.
And today, you programmed a complex scrolling backdrop game.
This club may be ending today, but that doesn’t mean your computer science journey has toend. You can continue to access your Scratch account and all of your Scratch projects afterthis club ends. The videos and activities you worked on are also available on the CSFirst website. You can explore any of the other available themes.
Scratch has a large community of other computer scientists who, like you, are learning andcreating with Scratch. From the Scratch website you can explore and comment on other people’screations and share your own. Scratch and computer science can also be usefultools for class projects. Consider using Scratch to create an interactive story, presentation,or game the next time you’re asked to create a school project.
In High School, you may have the chance to take a computer science course. As a CS Firstclub member, you should feel prepared for whatever your next computer science experiencemay be. Believe it or not, only 30 to 40 years ago,very few people owned computers.Today, computers are everywhere. Nearly every school and workplacerelies on computers to do their job. In CS First, you took an important first step inlearning computer science, skills that, no matter your path in life, will be important.
The CS First team would like to thank you and congratulate you on all that you haveaccomplished in this club. The future will be a better place with more computer scientists,like you, understanding how to program and use technology.
