Help your students advance their game design skills. They complete BeatBot Challenge by making the robot moonwalk and respond to different kinds of messages. Then they build Paint Racer, a pen-drawing game, and learn about angles, color, direction, and positioning. Upon completing this course, students will have a good understanding of a number of intermediate programming concepts such as conditional statements, messaging, timers, random numbers, and positioning using x- and y-coordinates.
Topics Covered: Draw geometric patterns using pen-based drawing primitives to manipulate angles, direction, sizes, and color. Learn about timers, random numbers, interactions between objects, and special effects.
