|Std 7 Computer
The Scratch application is a user-friendly and interactive visual programming platform. It is designed to teach programming concepts to people of all ages, particularly students. Class 7 students have designed a bouncing ball game where a ball moves dynamically, rebounding off a paddle positioned at the bottom of the screen. The objective of the game is to prevent the ball from touching the bottom boundary; if it does, the game ends, signalling a "game over" situation.
Creating this game in Scratch made students learn about programming logic, event-driven programming, and the use of variables and collision detection. This helped students practice math, being creative in designing games, and getting better at solving problems. They also learn to work together as a team and have fun while learning and being creative.
