Middle School Creative Coding 2

.25 Credits
9 weeks
Open

This course is appropriate and available to both middle and high school students. To enroll in the course, enroll in the high school version of this offering so that you are awarded the high school credit upon completion. The course will have the same title without the MS label in front. You will not be working with high school students in the course.

In Creative Coding 1 you used loops to repeat code and make things on the screen change over time. Now you’re ready to level up your skills and make your videos change based on things that you do with the mouse or keyboard.

Competencies
