Now I can open up the Washington Post and actually understand an article on the science behind new cancer treatments, or estimate how much of a seed’s energy eventually reaches a hawk. 

"Encode a Scene" Group Project

AP Computer Science Principles, Rebekah Lang


Unit 3's "Encode a Scene" Group Project

 To see the code for this scene, click here!

This project was a chance for my AP CSP students to show off their mid-year JavaScript programming skills as well as their ability to collaborate!

They worked in small groups of 2-4, using top-down design, to create digital scenes. They used's AppLab environment and each designed individual elements of their group project that would cohesively work together in their scenes.

They had to use abstractionsloops, functions and parameters, top-down design, the incremental and iterative design process, AND they had to be able to write about it!

This was great practice for the upcoming AP Exam's Create Performance Task.
