Star Wars Coding Projects
Use the Code Blocks, Luke!
- Includes step-by-step instructions for six projects
- Projects use MIT's Scratch programming environment
- Book designed for late elementary-age padawans
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.
