Kaboom Challenge

The Purple Maiʻa Kaboom Challenge Team will be taking part in the "Kajam" coding challenge sponsored by Replit.com. As members of the team you will work together, learning and applying a variety of skills to create a computer game. If you already have some coding experience that is a big help, but there will be lots of opportunities to learn, and team members can also contribute by creating the storyline for the game, creating art and graphics, or creating sound effects and music.

This will be an intensive one week project, so make sure you're prepared to invest several evenings throughout the course time period (Monday 10/18 - Sunday 10/24), and able to attend our meetings on Saturday 10/23 and Sunday 10/24.
