Use the Code Blocks, Luke!Learn to code games and use Scratch, guided by your favorite Star Wars characters! Star Wars Coding Projects is a step-by-step visual guide to coding fun projects in Scratch and shows you everything you need to know to create cool computer projects, animations, and games. Create your own sprites and use them in your projects. Build your own characters, navigate a spaceship through an asteroid belt, and go on a jetpack adventure. Learn essential coding skills, share your projects with friends, and challenge them to beat your scores. Each project consists of simple, numbered steps that are fully illustrated and easy to follow, with inspiration from Star Wars. Coding games have never been so easy or fun.
The book includes a space cruiser full of quotes and references from the movies, and uses the Star Wars universe and its characters as context for teaching the basics of code block programming, including how to work with images and sound. For example, what procedure do you think the trash compactor on the Death Star would use? How can you best equip a bounty hunter's jetpack with fuel? Immerse yourself in the Star Wars universe with these six projects. It's the perfect activity for late elementary-age Star Wars lovers from both sides of the Force.
Scratch is a free programming environment created by the Lifelong Kindergarten Group at the MIT Media Lab.
