In this video, you’ll program the introduction screen to appear at the start of your program.

The introduction screen is a sprite.

To make it appear at the start of the program, show it when the flag is clicked, then hide it.

To start, add a “when flag clicked” event and a “show” block.

Click the flag to try it out.

The introduction sprite might be hidden behind the other sprites, so add a “go to front” block from looks.

Now that the intro screen shows, it should hide after displaying for a few seconds.

Add a “wait for 2 seconds” block and a “hide” block.

Test the code.

The sprite shows, waits two seconds, then hides.

If you want the introduction screen to appear for a different amount of time, change the value in the “wait” block.

Great!

Now you should have a working “Best Quiz Ever!”

Find a few friends to try it out, then click the green arrow to move on to the add-ons where you’ll have a chance to further customize your quiz.

Now it’s your turn: Make the intro screen sprite show and go to the front when the flag is clicked.

Then, program the intro screen sprite to hide after waiting for 2 seconds.

Instructions
  1. Make the intro screen sprite show when the program starts.
  2. Program the intro screen to hide.
