Javascript Introduction

Class JavaScript Introduction
Level Advanced / Grades 4th-8th
Age 11+
Prerequisites Game Design 102 / 202
Description In this advanced lesson plan, students will be introduced to JavaScript as they complete engaging lessons, solve challenging puzzles, and build their own games in JavaScript. This course is ideal for students who have already completed at least one Tynker course and are comfortable with the basics of programming logic and computational thinking. This course will help them transition to JavaScript and adapt to the additional challenges of text-based syntax.

Students who successfully complete this lesson plan will demonstrate a strong mastery of JavaScript syntax, as well as the ability to creatively program games and other projects and debug their own code. Students will also be able to come up with an idea for a game and take it through the entire design and implementation process, creating custom versions of many of their favorite games in JavaScript.

Topics Covered: JavaScript syntax, sequencing, repetition, conditional logic, nested loops, automation, pattern recognition, simple motion, keyboard and mouse events, creating and using an HTML canvas, operators, expressions, variables, collision detection, using arrays and objects to store structured data.

Game Design 202

Class Game Design 202
Level Intermediate / Grades 6th-8th
Age 11+
Prerequisites Game Design 201
Description Students continue to apply what they have learned, and learn more advanced programming principles as they complete Cannon Crasher, the projectile physics game, and build a brand new top-down side scrolling adventure. In Cannon Crasher, they complete the game by adding impulses, setting angles, trajectories and programming collisions. In Dragon Attack, students define multiple levels, multiple lives and program a boss enemy, while learning about variables and cloning.

Topics Covered: Events, keyboard and mouse interaction, conditional loops, nested loops, sending and receiving messages, fluid motion, parallax scrolling, local and global variables, functions, and object cloning.

Game Design 201

Class Game Design 201
Level Beginner / Grades 6th-8th
Age 11+
Prerequisites Game Design 101 or 102
Description A fast-paced introduction to programming for students in grades 6-8. Introduce programming fundamentals to your class as they build two arcade-inspired games from start to finish. In Cannon Crasher, a physics game, they harness the power of the physics engine to program realistic jumps, projectiles, and bouncing balls. The Adventure Game features a knight who has to defeat enemies to reach treasure. Students program arrow keys, fluid motion, hero and enemy behavior, and winning conditions.

Topics Covered: Events, keyboard and mouse interaction, conditional loops, nested loops, functions, and sending and receiving messages. Basic physics programming such as gravity, bounding boxes, bouncing, projectiles, impulses, and collisions.
