Sargent Park Game On Participant Information

Hey there Junior High students who are going to Game On at Sisler next week.  You will need to know the following.

The conference will be using a program called Construct2.  It is a free download from the internet and great for you to use at home before the conference.

It would be beneficial for you to have a USB memory stick to save material on at the conference.

Here are some video tutorials you can watch before the conference.  They show you how to set up Construct2 and play around in the program itself.

Video 2
Construct 2 - Part #2 Adding objects to your game from Bernard Alibudbud on Vimeo.

Video 3
Construct 2 - Part #3 Adding behaviours and coding from Bernard Alibudbud on Vimeo.

We should have this in the lab by the end of the week.  Try to sit down as teams of 3 and figure this program out.

Scratch assignment for today December 14

Make sure you have a Simple Maze Game completed (last week’s assignment).

Now on to a more complex maze.  

  • Create another maze in scratch with similar wall distances (finger sized)
  • Create a sprite to navigate the maze and a sprite to complete the maze
  • *New* add two more sprites that will act as ghosts.  They will patrol part of your maze to stop the “maze sprite” from completing its task. Have them move back and forth.  This is the new coding for this maze.
Make sure the maze is completable and not too difficult.  Sorry for being absent.  See my blogpost for a maze that works with ghosts.

Timeline Typography Project

Here is the slide deck that explains the types of typography you need to have in your Timeline.

Each event and date should be in a large enough font to be seen in the preview at Google Drive.

Here is my timeline so far.
You may only have 2 fonts per page.
Keep it black and white.
You may have as many textboxes as needed to make a great presentation.

Marathon Parent Information 2016

Hello Parents. This year the Marathon Course is reversed.  Here are some helpful links for the race.  Your runner is on the spreadsheet.  It tells you when to arrive at the exchange (purple) and when the expected time of their team mate will arrive(white). I have also given an approximate time for your runner to finish their leg.  Please practice getting to the exchange points before the race.  Expect delays and give yourself plenty of time to get there on race day. For you veterans of the race there is a change this year.  We are running Backwards!! Be aware of new exchange points please.

The Marathon has a Google map and here are some helpful links. Click the links to see where the exchanges are in the city. When you arrive at the Google Map please click on Hospitality stations and you will see the Relay Exchange Zones.  These are the links that you want.

Please contact the school and ask for Mme Tetrault or Mr Harbeck before Thursday if you have questions.
