The last weekend we were at the Children’s Home, making the plan of our project with Scratch, a videogame / story with an educational message.
Santa Cruz has a big problem with the issue of garbage, If you walk down the street of a typical market in the city, you will see a white layer of paper and plastic on the asphalt. So, we decided that the theme of this project will be: recycling.
The work will be performed by two girls of the Children’s Home, these two girls like to draw, paint and write. Lena is a German volunteer who also is collaborating with us in making the story. Last Sunday we were working together in this last initiative of the project.
The characters, materials and scenarios will be drawn by the girls, tomorrow we will have a preview of the characters.
In this way the children themselves can create educational materials in a fun and creative way.
