App Design and Coding
Grades 6-8 (NOT AVAILABLE IF TAKEN IN THE 6TH OR 7TH GRADE)
GameSalad will be used to create games and apps for the iPad or other mobile devices. It aims to open the doors of game design to anyone who wants to create. With GameSalad’s complete set of tools and editors, bring your game to market faster and easier than with any other development platform; and without coding a single line.
In addition, students will learn basic programming using software called Alice. Alice is an innovative 3-D programming environment that makes it easy to create an animation for telling a story, playing an interactive game, or a video to share on the web. It allows students to learn fundamental programming concepts in the context of creating animated movies and simple video games. In Alice, 3-D objects (e.g., people, animals, and vehicles) populate a virtual world and students create a program to animate the objects.
