Interactive JavaScript forkids 10 to 13

Who can join?

This course is designed for teens/youth 10 to13 who have some basic knowledge in Javascript with code.org. If you don't have basic knowledge in JS, then we encourage you to contact info@mcode.club to ask for an assessment to see if this course is a good fit for you and what are the other alternative.

What is Interactive JavaScript?

In this course, teens will build on their coding learning experience with JavaScript through animations, interactive art, and games in Game Lab. The course starts off with simple shapes and builds up to more sophisticated sprite-based games, using the same programming concepts and the design process used by computer scientists to do daily work. The course will also include a final project, to give young coders the opportunity to develop an interactive program of their interest.

What are the learning goals of this course?

  • Program animations through sprite objects and the draw loop. By doing this, they will move sprites across the screen, and animate other sprites properties. 
  • Gain a deeper understanding of variables, especially boolean variables as well as conditional statements. 
  • Learn how to use the comparison to determine when a sprite has reached a specific point on the screen.
  • Learn how to use the keyboard to input data. Students will write a program that takes keyboard input from the user to control sprites on the screen.
  • Learn to manage properties to set velocity and rotation speed directly. They will learn how to use these properties in different ways to build up the skills they need to create a side scroll game.

How long is this course?

This course is 12 weeks long| (18 hours).
