Type: Lesson/Unit Plan

Overview:

In this online activity, students will learn what events are and how computers use them in programs like video games. Students will work through puzzles making the program react to events (like arrow buttons being pressed). At the end of the puzzle, students will have the opportunity to customize their game with different speeds and sounds.

In this lesson, students will develop their understanding of events by making a sports-based game. Students will learn to make their paddle move according to arrow keys and make noises when objects collide. At the very end, they will get to customize their game to make it more unique!

Students will be able to:
- identify actions that correlate to input events.
- create an interactive game using sequence and event-handlers.
- share a creative artifact with other students.
