Blockly Geometry

Duration: 4-5 weeks (8-15 hours)

Explore geometry through programming, and draw intricate patterns and explosive fireworks!

Explore geometry through programming, and draw intricate patterns and explosive fireworks! In this challenge, you’ll learn about how computers use angles, parallel lines and geometric transformations to generate the text and images you see on your screen every day. Use what you learn to develop your own fonts, pattern generators and even create a scene of colourful fireworks.

Colours, lines, drawings - all of these are produced through numbers, and with a bit of guidance and support, you’ll learn the coding techniques game, animation and application developers use to bring your computer experience to life. Unlock the power of Maths + Code!
