Hello, Chris at Kano here!
The Harry Potter Kano Coding Kit, includes hundreds of locations, creatures, objects, sounds and spell motions, that you can use to make your own code creations, and tell your own stories. 📖
This creation take us to the Hog's Head, so we can drink Butterbeer, and eat Pumpkin Pasties - Yum! 🍺 🥧
Let’s build it together. 🏗️
Start off by clicking the New Creation button (highlighted in purple) on your Profile.
This opens up a blank coding window with every object, sound, and spell motion unlocked.
Click the background button (highlighted in purple) to choose a background.
For this creation, I chose the Hog's Head (highlighted in purple), as that seems like the best place to drink Butterbeer, and eat a Pumpkin Pasty!
Once you’ve chosen your background, it appears in the Canvas on the right of your screen.
Time to code!
This creation uses 6 pieces of code to summon, change, and remove a tasty glass of Butterbeer, and a yummy Pumpkin Pasty, when you perform Harry Potter spell motions.
All of the code blocks are in the trays on the left of your screen (highlighted in purple). Match the colour of the blocks in the images below with the colour of the dots next to the trays to find the blocks you need.
Accio Tasty Treats!
This is the first piece of code that you need to create. It clears the canvas of all objects, and summons a fresh Butterbeer, and Pumpkin Pasty when you perform the Accio spell motion.
You’ll find the blocks you need in the Events, Objects, Particles, and Wand trays on the left of your screen.
Tip: Try changing the colour, size, and shape of the particles, and the LED colour and rumble pattern of your Coding Wand.
Let’s try changing the colour of the Butterbeer.
This piece of code turns the Butterbeer green with pink fizz, when you move your Coding Wand up.
This piece of code turns the Butterbeer pink with green fizz, when you move your Coding Wand down.
The code blocks you need, are in the Events, Objects, Wand, Particles, and Colour trays on the left of your screen.
Tip: Try changing the colour of your Butterbeer, and the particles to make different flavours!
Let’s try changing the size of the Pumpkin Pasty.
This piece of code makes your Pumpkin Pasty larger, when you perform the Engorgio spell motion.
This piece of code makes your Pumpkin Pasty smaller when you perform the Reducio spell motion.
You’ll need code blocks from the Events, Objects, Wand, and Colour trays on the left of your screen.
Time to clean up!
This piece of code is activated by the Bombarda spell motion, and removes the Butterbeer and Pumpkin Pasty with a bang, and a (Coding Wand) rumble!
The blocks you need for this piece of code are in the Events, Objects, Wand, and Particles trays on the left of your screen.
Don’t forget to Save your creation to Kano World so that everyone can see what you've made.
Click on the save button (highlighted in purple).
Then add a name, and a description that lets people know what your creation does, and how they can play with it.
I’m looking forward to seeing your multi-coloured Butterbeers, and huge Pumpkin Pasties all over Kano World.
