This week is the start of Computer Science Education Week and schools around the country are introducing kids to Computer Science with Hour of Code activities. Last week we shared a few ideas for coding with Scratch and controlling those creations with a Makey Makey in this post.
Today we are announcing our first challenge of the week along with the debut of a brand new guide.
This fresh guide is a weight-sensitive pressure switch! You can actually adjust the sensitivity of this controller. (We'll let you check the guide or watch the video below to find out how!)
So as you enter this week of promoting Computer Science Education, why not challenge yourself, or your students, to create a one button game with Scratch that you can control with this new controller?
How can you design a game that relies on only one button and that game still be fun, engaging, and meaningful? Creating one buttons games is not only a challenge, it is fun!
Here are some of our favorite one button games to inspire you!
