Extra Curricular Activities: SPARK Programming From Scratch

Untitled 1Every once in a while we hit it big with the extra curricular activities. Today was particularly good as Primo (disguised as RedNeckSideKick) and RocketRedNeck attended a SPARK (Simple Programming, Animation & Robotics for Kids) session at the University of Arizona.

While Primo has acquired a lot of programming experience in the last few months with the Apple //e and the Arduino, this experience was especially fun as he was able to build a fully interactive video game using the Scratch language interface developed by MIT.

Even Secondo jumped in on the fun after we got home and is starting to plan out his game concept. Just head to the Scratch or SPARK web sites and follow the instructions.

RedNeckSideKick’s efforts are at this link, and an in-progress remix that all of us worked on is here (and below)
