Welllllll Scratch does have default costumes (click the Costumes tab on a sprite and click the round icon of a cat head with a plus sign) but you can only get a maximum of 1 point if you use a default costume. If you edit the costume that number goes up to 2, but it's best to make your own costumes to get the most points.

1. The user accelerates, so acceleration
2. If the autonomous sprite accelerates, would it be considered another concept or is it covered in 1 ?
3. If the user always walks on ground, can we claim 'gravity', especially if it jumps and lands back down ?
4. Speaking of the above, is 'jump' a scientific concept?
5. If the sprite shoots missile, is 'shooting' a concept?
6. In your experience what counts and what does not?
1. If you can see the obvious change in speed, yes
2. Pretty sure it would be covered in 1 since it's the same thing happening
3. Gravity would be more of a scientific theme than a concept so probably not
4. Assuming the scientific theme at the competition is 'gravity' jumping would show how gravity exists, so yes
5. Shooting would also seem more like a theme with concepts within it? That would be an interesting theme
I'm probably not the best person to ask #6 sorry
