Practice PT - Design a Digital Scene

The final performance task for the unit requires class members to utilize what they have learned to create a personal digital scene. Groups work together to develop a scene and then, using top-down design, break the scene into manageable sections. Individuals then code components of the scene and combine all the codes to complete the whole scene.
