Book Description

Pen Art in Scratch : the art of and the of art (Learning programming and CS Book 1)

** Unleash the creative artist in you while enjoying the friendly Scratch programming environment.** Whether you are a beginner or an expert programmer, you will find turtle programming exciting and challenging. This book explores how the “Pen” feature of Scratch can be used to create interesting designs. Pen programming (aka Turtle programming) provides a visual feedback by providing a clear trace of the sprite’s movements. This is very helpful, especially for those who are new to the world of programming. It helps in analyzing your own thinking and serves as a debugging tool. Turtle programming challenges students to recognize and learn effective use of the divide-and-conquer approach to create seemingly complex designs. And last but not the least, it stimulates artistic creativity. Students are inspired to create interesting designs while simultaneously developing analytical and programming skills.
