Does anyone know how to make a game stop? Possibly a way to remove the stage event interval? Thanks!

Using a boolean in the loop sounds like a great solution. The stage can have only one event_interval so if you assign a new one, the old one is no longer used. My daughter has a demo program that uses the technique of a do_nothing event_interval when the player has lost the game and she wanted the animation to stop. Here is a link:

Just came across this project from Ms.O's class at Global Tech Prep! Excellent 7th grade work here!

I just found this project completed by a student in one of the GWC clubs. It's a pretty fun game. I bet someone could remix it to add another level!

Wondering how to engage high school students with Codesters? Tanya Wardally from the Boys and Girls High School is challenging and engaging her students. Her "Draw your initials" projects are really ramped up and she is challenging her students to re-create the architecture of famous buildings for the drawing create in place of creating logos. Can't wait to see what they come up with. Let's encourage Tanya to join the group and share!

Here are a few of the coordinate plane "Draw your initials" projects from Tanya's students:

If you're looking at the Cool Projects section and thinking, "Hey - I've never seen any of those sprites!" You're right. This student has used a custom background AND custom sprites. Learn how here:

Make your own spritesMAKE YOUR OWN SPRITES AND BACKGROUNDS FIND AN IMAGE You can search for an image on the internet, make a drawing and save it as a .png file. Our stage is a 500 pixel x 500 pixel space. You can set the size of any sprite after you import it, but this is something to keep in mind as you create or ...

Welcome Codesters teachers! I'm hoping that we can share some strategies here. Can you share one strategy that you've used when addressing student questions?

The most important thing for me was to complete all of the exercises myself first. Not only was it a lot of fun, but I have a complete set of solutions and I learned quite a bit while doing it. It also was helpful for me to look at the codesters-graphics project on github to learn more about the design of the library.
