this is really cool

Soviet Bear says:

I don’t understand why anyone would rather learn this over Python, when python is just as easy as the old Basic languages. Which where developed to be easy enough for a 5th grader. Python would give some actual coding experience.

Donna Marks says:

I wish I’d seen this video before a scratch class two days ago. It would have saved loads of time.

Joey Rix says:

if you set the repeat to 30 it does that in one click

I would recommend passing your voice recording through a noise-reduction filter, there is quite a lot of hissing.

A program to make ordinary IQ people think thy can program. Lol. Using Photoshop is more complex than this. It is not programming by any measure.

Feel free to take a look at this and see how it works! https://scratch.mit.edu/projects/91569023/

Romen Hasha Dube says:

It does not matter whether it is programming or not. The kids I had the honor to introduce it to and teach, enjoyed it. I could see it on their faces. That is all that should matter. Most of them are not even interested to take programming as a career. They had a good time working with each other, trying to figure out how to do what, getting it done and having fun. It is very doubtful, within the same period, they could get the same experience, using the likes of Java, Ruby, Python.

The only reason I’m watching this is because my teacher in school told me to as my homework.

P.s it’s boring
