Digital Schoolhouse Video Tutorials: Countdown for a Game

Video tutorials and handouts for creating a countdown for a game

The Digital Schoolhouse is a primary to secondary school transition project established at Langley Grammar School in Slough, Berkshire. The project provides a colleciton of online resources and lesson plans for ICT and Computing educators working with primary and secondary school pupils (ages 8-14) in the UK. Now anyone can access the Scratch tutorial videos and worksheets for free.

Count Down Game
This series of video tutorials introduces how to create an instruction screen for a game, using a 'space bar' to start a countdown timer which broadcasts a message to begin the game, change the stage and show a sprite.
