(702) Scratch meets Mozilla Thimble

A session at Mozilla Festival 2012

Sunday 11th November, 2012

11:00am to 12:00pm (GMT)

Scratch 2.0 allows you to create interactive games and animations while Thimble makes it incredibly easy to create and host your own webpage. Together they allow you to build rich web experiences right in your browser. Participants will learn how to use these applications together to easily create and host their own webpages with games and animations.

Our session will begin with a look at example projects created in Scratch and example websites created with Thimble. We’ll then walk through the creation of a simple website in Thimble and a simple project in Scratch and learn how to combine the two.

Once you have the basics down, you'll brainstorm ideas and then create your own interactive website (with support from the facilitators). You could make a simple game, a web poll, a tutorial site and so much more.

The session will end with a show and tell and a group discussion.

Take-aways:

  • an interactive webpage, made by you!
  • the ability to carry it forward and teach others
