Fun with Programming-Sketch or Treasure Hunt

Fun with Programming-Sketch or Treasure Hunt with JavaScript

Have fun learning how to write computer programs! Students will learn the fundamentals of computer programming using the very popular language, JavaScript, and will be able to immediately see the results of their code. Choose between two different projects in this class:

Sketch with JavaScript - Design a web app to implement a canvas to draw on, similar to an Etch-a-Sketch. Learn code to control your paint brush and change colors to create your masterpiece!

Treasure Hunt Game with JavaScript - Create a Treasure Hunt game in a web browser using images, shapes, sound effects, and text, and make our game character move and jump in search of treasure!

The main goals of the class are to give students a fun experience, while increasing their exposure to STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, Math) and demonstrating how technology and the arts can intersect. Students will gain an appreciation for programming and see how easy it is to learn. In addition to using their artistic and creative skills, they will learn how to break down and analyze problems as they debug their code.
