This video introduces adding sound to your project.

It won’t tell you exactly where to put the blocks, however, so use your courage and persistence!

If you need help, ask a neighbor.

If you can’t figure it out together, put up your sticky and ask a Guru!

To program your project to play a sound, you will first need to add that sound to your project.

To do that, click on the “sounds” tab, then “choose sound from library.”

To hear the sound, click on the play button next to it.

When you find a sound that you like, click on the sound, then click “OK.”

Click back on the “scripts” tab to go back to programming.

Click on the “sounds” tab.

There, you will find the “play sound” and “play sound until done” blocks.

The “play sound” block starts playing the sound, then immediately runs the code after it.

The “play sound until done” block waits until the sound finishes playing before continuing on to the next block.

To make the sound play continuously inside a loop, use the “play sound until done” block.

Play sounds when players catch objects, when objects appear, or constantly during the game.

You can even add different sounds for different objects!

The cool thing about computer science is that you have the power to create anything in your program.

Now it’s your turn: Add sound effects to your project using the “play sound” or “play sound until done” blocks.
