STEM Challenge of the Week: Bouncing Upside Down

Dhack Institute Scratch Challenge

Editor’s Note: The ‘STEM Challenges’ project by Dhack Institute aims at getting more kids interested in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) through various hands-on challenges. While the challenges are aimed at kids (6–18 years), anyone can participate unless explicitly stated otherwise.

To kick off the STEM Challenges, we start with something easy. Your mission will be to debug a Scratch program.

New Word Alert: Debug — To find and Fix errors.

About Scratch

Scratch is a programming language and online community where you can create your own interactive stories, games, and animations — and share your creations with others around the world. In the process of designing and programming Scratch projects, young people learn to think creatively, reason systematically, and work collaboratively. Scratch is a project of the Lifelong Kindergarten group at the MIT Media Lab. It is available for free at http://scratch.mit.edu
