I had a fun rant in class & the students created a meme for me; I will treasure it!
Making circuits that do something; lights & vibrator
Here is Tickle’s block-type code. It’s easy to drag & drop the ‘code’ bits and you basically have to sequence it in the order that you want things to occur. I created 2 functions which Tickle calls Events.
Tickle has a button on the bottom-left that shows you the Swift code (Apple). I was NOT able to maximize the screen & I was not able to save it easily into a separate file = annoying!
8 year old daughter created her first simple circuit using conductive tape, battery & LED
