Workshop instructions

Taking inspiration from Triennial artists, this Digital Creatives project looks at a simple game called Sea life made in a block coding program called Scratch in which an octopus character catches rubbish to clean the oceans. The project examines the code instructions behind the game and shows how code can be used to increase the level of difficulty.
