Participants will use scratch on a raspberry pi to work through developing a video game where trigonometry functions are used to make the game elements behave properly, zoom around the screen and generally do good video game things based on maintaining a momentum vector for objects on screen - in this case we build a simple version of asteroids to drive home the point that math is fun when it makes your game work properly - will also show greenfoot on raspberry pi with same game assets and algorithms

This is a Shed session.
