Last week was the first week with the full complement of code club members, new and returning. We filled the computer lab again. I had a Code Club World project that was new to all of them called Chatbot. I picked this Scratch project because it introduces “ask and answer” code blocks and “if statement” code blocks. Also, the project wasn’t your typical video game.
Chatbot is a new project that has just come out of “beta” testing so it used some aspects of Scratch 2.0 that aren’t available to us as our lab has version Scratch 1.4 installed. For example the characters the project says to choose from are all 2.0 sprites.
So I wrote a couple of my own versions of the project to demo to the students and let the students pick a sprite of their choice for the project.
