Session 13 – HTML and an introduction to Scratch

Hello everybody, it’s Ruby again. I hope you all had a lovely week so far. We had our usual check-in before we went through our homework which was to write an HTML page about our role models in the STEM sector. I chose Joy Foster because she has always been supportive of what I’ve wanted to do and that has motivated me to keep going. In my page, I included color, font and image tags.
We sent our HTML pages through email. The team showed what we did and they were impressed with our homework – I did feel proud of what I had accomplished!
One of the girls had some errors with her HTML page and I was able to help her out with debugging her code to get it working correctly. It’s nice to be able to work in a group and help and learn from one another.
After we had our 5 minute break, we started to use Scratch. I said in my previous post that the last time I used Scratch was at secondary school. It is a visual programming site. You can drag and drop whereas HTML is text based. After I created my Scratch account, we were given a task to produce an interactive card. I started doing a birthday card for my brother and I used a sprite called Ruby, a birthday cake and I made a table for the cake to rest on.  It was fun to make.
At the end of the session, we were given homework which is to do Scratch and HTML exercises.
We will be doing Scratch again next week and I’m looking forward to it.
I will see you another blog post
