Subject to Review by Instructor

Scratch 2.0 is a free cloud computing solution from MIT that lets you create interactive art, animations, music, and games.

Students will CREATE Simple Machines using Lego Wedo and program them using Scratch 2.0
Students will IDENTIFY and USE Variables to manipulate Scratch and WeDo motors to control said machines.
Students will USE distance input to control computer graphics and Lego Wedo creations.
Students will USE binary numbers to perform basic counting and decoding operations.
Students will ENCODE their names in a binary system.
Students will CREATE moving sculptures with WeDo Robotics system that use rotational motion and gears.
Students will CREATE Scratch games and animations that will be control by body movement (optics).
