Today you are going to continue to practise finding the patterns, and then adding loops where needed to create a shape.  Remember, when we see a pattern within a sequence or set of code, we can put that into a loop (or repeat) block. 

Reflection

Was there anything that was tricky? 

What would you do to help someone else that found it hard?

Lesson 6: Build a Star Wars Game

In these tasks you will practise using events to build a game (Please don’t share online!)  The game will feature R2-D2 and other Star Wars characters and you will be guided through events to then have a go at creating your own game.

Some real-life events and actions include:

  • Feeling hungry and eating food.
  • Stubbing your toe and yelling “Ouch!”
  • Getting the basketball in the ring and scoring a point for your team!

Events are very common in computer programs, especially in video games.

Lesson 3: Debugging in Collector

In these tasks you will get to practise reading and editing code to fix puzzles with simple algorithms (instructions), loops and ‘nested loops’. These programs do NOT work. You will need to fix these programs. This is called ‘debugging’.

Debugging can get really frustrating at times. Remember to take your time and go through it one step at a time.

Use the ‘step’ button to help you debug the puzzles.
