Your first Hydroponics and Scratch challenge! Watch the video and then see if you can get one of the plants growing. Once you’ve done one – just apply your code to the other three. You will soon have plants to be proud of!
CHALLENGE 2: LIGHTS ON!
You are going to need light for the plants to grow. Watch the video and learn how to turn the lights on and off. Make sure that you are switched on!
CHALLENGE 3: GROW WITH LIGHT
This is a chance for you to use what you have learnt in the previous two challenges. The video will also introduce you to the idea of using a variable. Big plants, lots of lights and great coding skills!
CHALLENGE 4: PUMP IT UP AND ADD NUTRIENTS!
This challenge allows you how to bring some animation into your Scratch programs. Make sure that you look carefully at how the programs work. You will soon have a dripping pipe, a tipping bag of nutrients and bubbling pump!
AN EXTRA CHALLENGE…
One final challenge. Can you bring all of your coding skills together into one program? The sprites are all there for you – just apply your skills and bring them all to life. Good luck!
