Project: The Story of an App
Is it hard to create an app? Using the MIT App Inventor, one can build a demo phone or web application by simply dragging and dropping. How about creating a story with the application? In teams of two, the participants were tasked to turn their applications into stories by choosing themes and age groups that the stories would be targeted towards.

Project: Interactive Poster
Communication is key for poster design, and the summer youth coded their own posters using Processing 3. They added text, shapes, images as well as open processing to produce flowing posters that could be seen as music or promotional artwork. With some coding knowledge, the next project involves a few new languages with some similar concepts.

Project: Glitch VR Websites
Project: Glitch VR - Participants create VR websites for computer and phone.
Using Glitch and A-Frame coding, participants learned how to create VR websites that you can use on your computer and phone. Glitch generates random domain names, so the themes for the projects were based on those. The next part was to become familiar with the 3D space, and how to change the positions, rotations and animations of objects. The participants now have a spatial awareness of the 3D digital world, leading into the next project.
