Hey you! Yes you!
Have you been spending hours on Scratch trying to figure out the basics of code and how to use vector editor? Have you tried and tried to find a good studio that has all the tutorials you need?
Well never fear! Welcome to the sᴄʀᴀᴛᴄʜɪɴɢ 101 studio! Here you will find information and projects of all shapes and sizes containing the useful information you need!
And guess what? All this priceless information is free! For only zero dollars you can find everything you need to master Scratch like a pro!
So what are you waiting for? Get Scratching!
WHAT TO DO?
So you're bored and don't know what to do? Well I have just the solution for you! Below is a list of things you can do or make here on Scratch!
1. Make a project!
There are many types of projects you can make! The possibilities are endless (as long as you follow the Scratch guidelines).
Scratch is a place where kids (and adults) can share their interests through coding! There are millions of projects out there just waiting to be noticed! You never know, someone else's project can inspire you to make one of your own. :3
3. Do something else!
You don't want to create a project or look at others projects? Well then maybe just read a book or go outside! Sometimes the Internet doesn't always have the answer.
TYPES OF PROJECTS
Games are a very popular topic among Scratchers. If you like playing games and would like to learn how to make one of your own this type of project is for you!
If you are more interested in creating presentable artwork and getting better at vector than I think you would be great in the art category!
Animation, in my opinion, is quite hard! Many people do find it entertaining and fun so if you enjoy movie making and animating than Animation projects are defiantly a plus.
STEM projects are unfortunately not as common as you may think. These projects focus mainly on the science parts of Scratch. If you are more attracted to the science or math of the project rather then other features than STEM type projects are great for you!
5. Remix remix remix!
If you just want to edit other people's projects then that's when the remix button comes in! Click that button and you have access to the entire project! Don't forget to give credit of course!
Maybe none of these things are for you? There are millions of possibilities of projects you can do on Scratch! Go be creative!
