Make 120 - Hour of Code

Posted: May 12, 2017

Look for ideas

Come up with an idea where we have or you can get the materials.  It needs to be a well developped project with a design journal and multiple steps.  You need to see a problem and come up with a solution.  The project needs to be finished to the best of your abilities (no sloppy work).

You need to document the process - video or pictures with voice over.
