Computerless programming with Scratch

  • CoderDojo Foundation

    CodesCool have developed Scratch Unplugged, a ready-to-use game allows students to learn programming concepts without a computer.

    This might be useful as a warm-up game and particularly if you run beginners sessions in Scratch to get them started. Or even as a back-up game if laptops or internet aren’t readily available in your Dojo.

    The manual for teachers allows you to get a grasp on the game’s set-up and how it is played.

    Just cut out these blocks, based on the desktop version of Scratch, from the printed out pieces of paper/card and you’re good to go!

    The game is played on a board consisting of all kinds of different objects such as a wall and bombs.

    Where you can find all the basic rules and regulations for the game :)

    Thanks Geert for sharing. If you try this out at your Dojo do let us know how you get on :smile:

  • @Nuala-McHale If you good folks try it, can you put up a quick video?


    I hope to be able to try it in our pop up dojos!!!

    This looks class! This type of unplugged activity in itself is nothing new but I love that somebody has gone and put together a complete pack that’s ready to go, all you have to do is print it.
