Events in computer science are the triggers for making action happen, like selecting the play button on any screen. Events in Scratch are represented by the yellow codes including: when flag clicked, when sprite clicked, when key pressed and broadcast. Broadcasting is the most advanced event in Scratch and helps with interactions between sprites like pacing their conversations or changing levels.

This project uses Google’s CS First Game Design Theme.  If you are new to CS First, follow this link for a getting started with CS First video series.  It includes 8 short videos and will guide the teacher through a simple activity they can complete as a student so they get a feel for what students will be doing. This lesson is part of the Virginia K-12 Computer Science Pipeline which is partly funded through a GO Virginia grant in partnership with Chesapeake Public Schools, Loudoun County Public Schools, and the Loudoun Education Foundation.
