Campers Program Digital Games with Bitsbox

This afternoon in the AT&T Classroom campers were introduced to Bitsbox, an online application that displays a virtual tablet on which the user is able to access programming lessons to build simple apps and games in JavaScript.  Once the user has created a game, they are able to use a mobile device such as an iOS or Android tablet or smartphone to scan the QR code associated with their Bitsbox project. They are then able to access their game on that mobile device through the QR code. In today’s session, the campers used the QR Reader app on the iPads to scan their QR codes and were then able to immediately play their newly-created game on the iPad.

The challenges used in today’s session are available on the Bitsbox website at no cost  ( Bitsbox also offers subscription plans that include monthly mailings containing new programming trainings, challenges and projects.
