Moved Permanently. The document has moved here. Scratch is a free programming language and online community where you can create your own interactive stories, games, and animations.
Additional PRO-ATC/X voice sets. The idea is that users may produce they own voice sets so that the records may be used later in PRO-ATC/X as a controller/pilot/copilot voice set by the speaker itself and by other users - of course for free. PRO-ATC/X just runs autonomously beside Flight Simulator-X. Top priority was focused on to not restrict Flight Simulator-X in any way. Using PRO-ATC/X, you'll not notice significant loss of frames per second. Partially 1 or 2 frames - if at all. The interface used is the FSX standard interface 'SimConnect'.
Below are some handouts for an activity that teaches how to program some simple mini-games in Scratch. Scratch is a great educational tool for teaching simple programming concepts to kids.
The first game is an introduction to Scratch. It includes step-by-step instructions on how to make a simple game and tries to familiarize you with how Scratch works.
The other games are designed as exercises with just a general description of what you need to program in order to make the game work. In the exercise handouts, the 'Try It' sections are optional. If a 'Try It' section is too hard, you can skip it and still end up with a working game at the end.
Avoid the monsters and get the cake.
Drive around the track.
Dress-up a doll in different clothes
Shoot at the clay targets.
Solve puzzles to escape the room.
Run through the maze to get the cheese.
Topics: Collision Detection, Artificial Intelligence
Guide for teachers on how the handouts can be used in a classroom setting
If you are using Scratch on computers without Internet access, then the direct links to the Scratch projects on the handouts won't work. Instead, you can download the Scratch project files here. Then, you can load the projects into your offline version of Scratch.
