Fun with Programming-Sound Effects or Race Cars 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:

Sound Effects with JavaScript - Write code to implement a sound effects matrix where you will get blasted with different effects depending on where your character is on the grid!

Race Car Game with JavaScript - Create a carnival game, Race Cars, which will run in a web browser and utilize images, shapes, sound effects, and text. Learn to code on how to control the game characters and race to the finish line!

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.
