Scratch Projects – Cat on Trampoline

Learn how to build interactive projects with Scratch!

Whether games or apps, interactivity is an important component of coding that adds functionality to our programs. It is also an aspect that can make projects more memorable and positively impact both education and learning outcomes that the projects want to convey.

This course will explore interactivity in Scratch by showing you how to detect keyboard input and move a cat sprite to jump on a trampoline based on this input. Along with this, you’ll discover a variety of core coding principles useful for interactivity, such as detecting object collisions, performing event-based actions, accessibility, storing data in variables, and constructing a user interface.

By the end, you’ll not only understand how interactivity can be incorporated into projects and algorithms, but have new Scratch skills in your toolkit to create even more robust projects.

This course assumes basic familiarity with Scratch.

You will learn how to:

  • Move sprites based on key presses
  • Store and manipulate data with variables
  • Detect when two objects are touching
  • Listen for events to perform actions
  • Control and display information with UIs
  • Test projects for color-blind accessibility

… and more!

Why should I learn programming?

We’re living in the age of technology. In every industry, demand for developers is high and continues to rise, yet there’s a shortage of skilled developers. As a result, there’s a huge number of exciting opportunities out there for developers who want to take them.

By mastering the skills taught in these courses, you’ll prepare yourself for roles in a wide range of industries. Whether you want to work in a startup or a Fortune 500 company, you’ll learn in-demand knowledge and techniques that will help you to succeed.

What will I achieve by taking these courses?

You’ll not only learn the most in-demand modern languages, frameworks, and tools, but also how to apply them to your own projects and real-world situations.

Additionally, as our courses are primarily project-based, as you learn you’ll develop a rock-solid professional portfolio that can be used to impress potential employers.

Technology changes quickly. What happens if the content becomes outdated?

We’re committed to providing you with the most up-to-date, relevant content. If one of our courses becomes outdated due to modern practices, we’ll update it. Often, we’ll even remake it entirely using the latest versions of the languages, tools and frameworks.

We’re committed to keeping up with cutting-edge developments in the industry, and turn this knowledge into new courses, which we publish every month.

I’m an absolute beginner who’s never coded before. Can I still do these courses?

Yes, you can! We have entry-level courses on all key topics, and each of our curriculums feature guided learning paths that show you what courses are needed to reach your goals.

Additionally, if you need a little extra help, we have expert mentors on hand to answer any course-related questions that you might have.

What time commitment is needed?

We get that you’re busy, and so we’ve designed our courses to be completely flexible, so you can learn at your own pace and fit your courses around your schedule.

While we recommend that you put in at least a few hours a week (the more hours put in, the more you’ll get out!) there are no time limits or deadlines that you need to worry about.

Will these courses help me to change my career?

Many of our students have been able to successfully change their careers, land their dream job, get promoted, and even start their own businesses… and you have the potential to do the same!

You can also combine your existing skills with your new tech skills, and expand your career, rather than changing it completely.

Our courses have been designed to teach you highly transferable skills, and leave you with strong projects that can be added to your professional portfolio – whatever you want to do, we’ll help to get you there! 🙂
