This is a simulation of a salmon that tries to swim upstream of the river where it was born.
I really like this simulation. Before this, I didn't know that Etoys could see color gradients. This project also shows all the scripts, so you can watch the steps of the animation as well as see the scripts of the various objects.
Nice project that show how sensing can be simulated.
Really good and engaging. Feel sorry for the poor salmon. Left it alone for quite a while and he almost reached the dark corner just to get completely lost again. Does it every win and end the game?
I was asked by local volunteers to point to some examples to study. For starters I keep recommending the animated storybook; it covers many areas of Etoys and is not difficult for a beginner.
I guess there is a universal complaint about time in the classroom and complying with the study program.
Examples like this I imagine are great to learn programming and getting all the associated benefits. However it doesn't seem to cover much of a standard school program.
What should teachers do??
