Learn Scratch and core programming skills by interacting with the real world through the Pico Board device. We will also build some interesting games using Kodu.
Detailed Description: This is an intermediate course which builds up on previous courses to apply programming skills learnt to real life problems interacting with the real world. We will be using a number of tools and programming languages, including Scratch, Kodu and Pico Board. A PicoBoard is a piece of hardware that allows Scratch projects to interact with the outside world. We will use the PicoBoard to create interactions with various sensors through the Scratch programming language. The PicoBoard incorporates a light sensor, sound sensor, a button and a slider, as well as 4 additional inputs that we will use to allow our programs to recognize real life objects!
