Computer Science Class Creates Interactive COVID-19 Python Game

Cadets taking Mr. Morgan’s computer science course during the fall 2020 semester combined their computer and COVID-19 knowledge for their final exam. Their final instructed them to create an interactive game that features four COVID-19 safety protocols – social distancing, handwashing, testing and mask wearing.  

To create the game, cadets needed to use python code to create interactive python graphics. It required them to be creative in the use of their computer science knowledge.  

The course is part of MMA’s science, technology, engineering, art and math (STEAM) curriculum, supporting MMA’s strategic plan to prepare cadets for 21st century academic achievement and to succeed in college and beyond.
