NASA provides numerous datasets to the public. Accessing these datasets often requires technical knowledge beyond that of most people. Our goal is to make this data more easily accessible.
Our future Scratch blocks will provide more data from satellites and the space station for Scratch programmers to use in their programs.
For an example of how these blocks can be used to find data for specific locations: http://scratchx.org/?url=https://artisan-digital.g...
Scratch extensions must be developed in ScratchX Beta. ScratchX is a flash based application. The procedure to load extension blocks is more cumbersome than necessary. ScratchX only allows extensions to be loaded from GitHub Pages, which requires pushing every change to the associated GitHub repository. Every update would have a delay while waiting for GitHub Pages to reflect the repository. This led to an extremely difficult workflow.
Furthermore, we originally had four member, but one our members, Dillong Long, became ill and had to leave.
