Climate Hero: Bernice Dapaah
Project Description: This project follows a turtle informing the user about climate change and a climate hero, Bernice Dapaah. The user needs to drag articles from a computer to a mailbox to educate people about climate change; “pick up” ocean trash; plant a tree; and harvest bamboo. The user can also answer questions such as “What climate heroes do you know?” From there, I introduce my climate hero, Bernice Dapaah. The user can drag bamboo sticks to the right part of the bike and it will click in, completing the bamboo bike. Enjoy!Play Game
I love to create! Writing, drawing, coding, and exploring science make me happy. I’m constantly looking for new tools and opportunities to learn and turn my ideas into reality. I create to learn. I chose Bernice Dapaah is because she is a maker. When her bike always broke on the way to school, she thought of creative ways to build her own bike with bamboo. She also worked with engineers and others in her community in Ghana to improve her design and build a company and movement. Scratch allows me to tell her story in a fun way! I like making interactive games because the user can actually learn by doing. The future will be brighter if more people are engaged!
