A while back, a friend told me that Scratch was too simple a scripting platform for Grade 9 students. As anyone that has some idea of scripting/coding will know, it’s as easy or hard as you want it to be! Here’s some examples of the final scratch games/quizzes which the Grade 9’s have been working on over the last month. Unfortunately, we’ve found that large scripts (over a page in length with many loops) and large numbers of scripts (100 or so scripts) can create bugs in the games – even when there appears to be nothing wrong with the script. Has anyone else found this with Scratch?
