NGV Code: Put Your Smile on Your Dial :)

Using Scratch, this activity gives you the steps to code a clock that reflects the current time of your location with the hour, minute and second hands.

And then the fun part – every hour the clock face will change to something of your choosing for a short time before returning back to normal. This could be your face, an emoji, your cat…anything!

In the example provided, an emoji and a very happy child has been selected for the clock faces.

This program uses a range of coding techniques in Scratch including show and hide, sprites and costumes, and control and operator blocks.
