My son Zachary has been taking his first “official” computer science class this year. They have been working with a number of 3D modeling tools and other graphics packages to create assets. He has also really used and mastered Apple’s Garage Band Tool for creating and syncing audio tracks.
The latest programming they have been doing is in Adobe Flash (Action Script).
The other night at the local Apple Computer Store in Walnut Creek, his teacher, Mrs. MacDonald, had all of the students present their programs up on a big screen in front of all the parents. It was a really nice venue for the event and Apple gave the young programmers free T-shirts. It was really cool to geek out with the kids.
Zach authored and demonstrated several of his projects including an Animated Escalade car (like his mother’s real one HA) and a game that he built called Duck Shoot.
