Will Code.org implement a collision detector for CSP’s App Lab? I have a lot of students wanting to incorporate this into their Create Task but are having difficulty implementing. Doug McNally has made a great tutorial video, found here but I am also teaching CS Discoveries and coincidentally we are on Unit 3 Stage 12 (Collision Detection). For this section, it’s very intuitive and easy to detect collisions, but in App Lab, it’s no longer easy. Is there a reason for this I’m completely missing?
I have a lot of students that want to create games for their Create Task and it seems as though CS Discovery’s coding section would be more appropriate for them, but then they would have to start from the beginning there.
Is there a way to incorporate the two into one App? That would be ideal!
EDIT: Never mind. I guess they can just create the function “isTouching” and use that like the beginning of CS Discoveries has shown. It would be nice to have features similar to CS Discoveries in App Lab though…
