Final Independent Project

Finally ... the final project. As a culminating activity for the nine-part Intro to CS with MakeCode unit, scholars create a program within Minecraft that incorporates skills from the unit. They consider how to survive in the wild and write code to find solutions for issues that may arise. In addition to the actual project, they must turn in a work log and record of thinking.
