Computer Game Design by Dr. Ian Perera, Research Scientist, IHMC

February 5, 2022

The topic of IHMC's February Science Saturday was computer game design. This event was taught by Ian Perera, a computer scientist who works in the filed of natural language processing. Students learned basics of the scratch programming language, including loops and if-then statements. They used these and other constructs to implement a computer game which they were able to customize with some of their own design choices. Parents were sent a link to allow participants to continue to work on and play their game at home.
