Scratch Challenge 4 – Cannon Blast

We are going back to Challenge 4, because somehow I skipped over #4. I maybe need some work on counting.

This week’s challenge is all about shooting an object through the air in order to hit a target. Here are the three criteria:

  1. Cannon must be able to move up and down
  2. A flying cannonball
  3. A Random location for the target

What are scratch challenges, you ask?

I taught my children some scratch programming last spring. We finished the book, but they wanted more. I decided to put together weekly programming challenges for them. I present the challenge and give them a week to come up with a solution. I provide some help and examples along the way. Plus, I have decided to share the challenges and help online at The Dr GooF YouTube Channel.

Watch the video below for the full description.

Thanks and Happy Cannon Blasting!

Scratch Challenge 5 – Dance Off

The challenge this week is a simple and fun one. Just create some dancing characters. Here are the 3 things to include:

  1. More than one dancing sprite (a sprite is a character in Scratch Programming)
  2. Add music/sound
  3. Add some custom sound
