Module 4: Complex Problems

Module 4: Complex Problems

As students progress in coding they notice that advanced applications are not really very conceptually difficult but they are complex. This means that they consist of many small simple programs / scripts which work together to create an pretty awesome game or application. In this course the students will create a maze game with intelligent villains, escalating difficulty and a scoring system!

Student Outcomes of this Module:

  • Students have to create game dynamics where the game becomes more difficult with time. This means that the enemy movement, or even enemy numbers and sizes, are related to the score
  • Students have to create a simple type of artificial intelligence to get the enemy Sprites to move around the maze in an unpredictable but coherent manner
  • Students have to create multiple backgrounds or Sprites that are new mazes and switch between them seamlessly

Sanjin combines his passion for teaching and education with an in-depth understanding of a vast array of technologies. He graduated in 2007 from The Australian National University, majoring in Robotics and Computer Vision. He has a unique ability to adapt various engineering concepts into hands on classroom activities and teach everything from Scratch, Python, Arduino to Raspberry Pi to very young audiences. His role with Techxellent centres around doing this on a larger scale in an easy to follow ‘progression model’ which imbues students with a new mindset required for innovation and analytical thinking. In 2016 his goal is to raise the bar in student engagement with programming and robotics by enabling students to communicate with computers much like they do with their friends— using facial expressions and hand gestures.
