Coding Lab

Create customized arcade games, trivia challenges, web apps, and more; all while learning the basics of coding!  This is a self-paced, year-long program that allows students to jump into one of three coding environments, based on their experience level.  These environments include:

  • Scratch: A “drag-and-drop” style coding environment for beginners to create interactive scenes and basic games.
  • WoofJS: A hybrid of “drag and drop” and fully typed-out code, acting as a kind of “stepping stone” from Scratch to JavaScript.
  • JavaScript: Advanced students can use this complete coding language to create complex games and web apps.

Throughout the course, students can choose from many self-guided projects and our instructors are available to guide them and provide one-on-one assistance on whatever project they are building.

Concept/Standards: Coding

**This program is compatible with Chromebooks**

Sample Projects

Apple Catcher

Built in Scratch, “Apple Catcher” is a basic game where the player must move a character side to side to catch apples falling from the top of the screen. Students learn about variables, loops, keyboard events, and more.

Alphabet Astroids

In WoofJS, students make a new version of the classic arcade game “Asteroids”, using only keyboard characters for game graphics! This project has students practice using “if statements”, velocity, collision detection, and other coding concepts that are key to designing games.

Portfolio

One of the first JavaScript projects that advanced students can create is a web portfolio with a personal biography, links to their projects, and other interactive elements. This project introduces students to HTML, CSS and JavaScript.
