Coding Day 8: Fun Art

I took the weekend off.  I hadn’t really intended to, but we ended up doing some work around the house.  Geeky Girl returned from a long time away so we did some things with her, and I just decided not to squeeze it in.

Today’s coding is a little bit of a cheat, but it had to be done.  I wrote 3 or 4 little graphics demos for my 7th graders.  I created some interactive art and some animations.  The interesting thing about doing these is that there are constraints.  If I was doing these for myself, the sky would be the limit.  I’d push my capabilities, but there are things I can’t approach when dealing with younger kids: data structures are mostly out as is working with objects.  So I tried to do some interesting things without getting too complicated.  Below are some screen shots.
