Siya's foray into Scratch

I was a bit apprehensive when it was mentioned that we would be using Scratch to make interactive projects for this class. I didn't know much about the programme anThe Scratch Image via Wikipediad I was scared that the learning curve would be too high for me to get a grasp of this programme in time to create some worthwhile projects with. Boy was I wrong.

My first experiences with scratch have been really interesting. When I started, I did not know what to do. I explored the scratch website, but I couldn't figure out what I wanted to do. I got some inspiration from the VoiceThread slides when we made the cat move around in circles. My idea was to have the cat move in a half circle, stop when it gets to 180 degress, and go back the other way-- just like a skater moves in a half pipe (see picture below).
