I just posted my first ever Scratch project here: http://scratch.mit.edu/projects/19895114/
It's called "The Art of Scratching and Creative Life Lessons." I think of myself more as an artist than a tech person, so I tried to find a way to join the two.
What I found most interesting about the process was how the elements I wanted to create drove what I learned. That is, as I came up with ideas of what I wanted to add, I then dove in and played with the program to figure out how to get it to work. I really felt a powerful sense of intrinsic motivation and interest-driven learning in action.
I hope what I created isn't too far afield from what Scratch is all about. Thanks for a fun exercise!
