Open Day

Wednesday, October 24th, 2012

Dear Fellow Readers,

My school will be having an Open Day, which will allow young school students to decide which school to go to. My IT department have selected me to represent IT in my school. I am planning to do a Scratch project, but I’m not sure what one. What do you think would be amazing for me to do? Comment Below!

Enjoy!

I need you!

Friday, October 19th, 2012

For the last two weeks I have been getting my Scratch back to a decent standard. What I need now is YOU! I need YOU to suggest to me a project to do. I need the big challenge. The best idea I will do!

Good luck!

Hint To My Project + Update

Friday, October 12th, 2012

This is my first hint on my project. I’ve realized that because of a recent Scout badge+this I may be slightly afk in the next few weeks. Follow me on twitter @Ajnin123 though to be more updated.
PS: The quest to get a single sever donation is still on mum! 😀

Dear Readers,

As I am working on a epic project, I will not be updating for the next week.

In the meantime:

Why not challenge me with something on Minecraft or Scratch.

 

Sorry for any inconvenience.

Aj

Happy Sukkot!

Behind The Scenes Scratch…

Saturday, September 29th, 2012

Recently, I have been working on ‘The Game Of Life’ in Scratch. Something which few have tried, and none have ever succeeded. A world first! Anyway, it’s done now and you should check it out!

The Game may look simple, but in reality, it isn’t.

You may of also thought that my homework was simple to make…

😀 Hope You Enjoy

The day in the life of : Doing homework

Saturday, September 22nd, 2012

To many, doing homework is the most boring thing someone could be doing. And to an extent, I find this true. One of my latest homework’s involved me on writing 2 pages about scissors (how to use them, their history e.c.t.). However, as they say, give and interesting question, and you get an interesting answer.

Task:
Make a timescale of the earth (and if you can universe):

I think this comes to show, that with the power of tech, you can create some epic stuff!

So the moral of the story is kids…

The day in the life of : Finding out what ‘Scratch’ is?

Saturday, September 15th, 2012

So…what’s Scratch?
Website

Basically, for all those people who can’t code java at a pro level (or are scared of code)…there’s something for that.
Imagine Lego, but each brick has a basic bit of code, a variable, moving, rotating. e.c.t.
…and you can place these bricks in chronological order until you create a game, animation or simulation.

You can be mega complex…
Or you can make a cat do a dance.

You can use your project as inspiration/demonstration.
Convert it to an app.
Upload it to the interweb.
Use the code in Second-Life or Open-Sim
Or extend your project to make it recognize real life changes (sound, light, kinect, sliders e.c.t.).

Now it’s your turn…

My Scratching Experience (in a nutshell):

– I ran a scratch club for 4 years

– I have won the YFactor competition in my Scratch expertise.

– My friends and my teachers think I’m great at Scratch, and are constantly asking for advice. 🙂

– Mitchel Resnick (the creator), once wanted to Skype me, maybe I should of got round to doing so… :S
