Scratch Workshop for February 25th, 2012: Using We-Do Sensors to make Games with Tilt and Distance Controls!

How do we use Tilt and Distance sensor input values to control game characters? In this workshop students will create a “Seeking” Game where a character “searches” through different scenes and moves using the We-Do Tilt Sensor. Students will also create a driving simulator and use the Distance Controller to create a Virtual Instrument in Scratch.
