Mouse "Web Animator" Microproject

Recently, you may have heard about software called Adobe Flash and how websites like Scratch will no longer support it. You may have even been asked for permission from your web browser to activate Adobe Flash before watching a video or playing a game online. This will happen less often moving forward since Flash will no longer be supported by its parent company by the end of 2020, but what even is Flash? And why did it matter in the first place? The short answer is that Adobe Flash was software that internet creatives used to bring life to the early web with animations, videos and games. Now Flash is going away but the creativity it inspired remains, and we have fun new tools to work with in its place. This month, we’d like you to give one of these tools a try.

Your challenge is to make an interactive animation using Wick!

Get Started!

Find the Web Animator Microproject on Mouse Create and follow the steps. Then upload an interactive animation as an HTML file and submit this project to your group.
