Google CS First Music & Sound

  • FEB 22 – Introduction and Discovery – We learn about the scope and procedures of this CS First club, then explore Scratch and create our first program.
  • FEB 29 – Dance Party – We create a dance party animation. We will use forever loops and will be encouraged to tinker with the “movement” blocks.
  • MAR 7 – Musical Art – We create a colorful collage by programming a repeating pattern. Then, we will make the colors in the collage play a sound when the mouse touches them.
  • MAR 14 – Guru Introduction and Musical Talent Show – We learn more about the CS First Gurus and earn badges by creating a Musical Talent show.
  • MAR 21 – DJ Mixer – We choose a repeating loop of background music, make a slider that speeds up or slows down a sound, and create a keypress event that plays a single note.
  • MAR 28 – Music Video – We create a music video using procedures, which are new commands made up of a set of instructions. To define a procedure in Scratch, we need to make a new block. We also choose a song for our video and add a sprite that grows.
