These "people" either have dirty or clean hands, so the goal is for everyone to have clean hands. Dirty hands can be washed at the sink, which is at the center of the screen, or wherever you put it!

The problem is that when a person with dirty hands touches a person with clean hands, their hands also become dirty and so they spread the dirtiness around like a disease! Can you beat this game?

The programming system for this project is Scratch. This tool is a perfect introduction to programming, as well as widening your knowledge in the field.

In the course, you will learn the fundamentals of programming using Scratch, how to move an object on the screen, loops, conditional statements and other still complex terms that will seem elementary later!

You will also learn how to use the "Video sensing" extension, which will allow us to use our cameras to control our game! This allows us to move around instead of using the mouse and keyboard to influence the game!
