Spring Microproject: JavaScript Generator

For the upcoming Microproject, we challenge you to remix our Invention Idea Generator to create your own million dollar ideas!

Get Started

In this microproject, we’re going to make playing with code as easy as filling in the blanks! Introducing the Invention idea Generator, a simple idea-making web app that you can remix and make your own! With the click of a button, the Invention Idea Generator randomly generates a new ‘million-dollar idea’ by using JavaScript to randomly choose words from a series of lists. In this activity, you will use simple code to customize the lists to create your own unique idea generator. But why stop there? Using very little coding, this project will show you how to create any kind of generator you can think of!

Your challenge is to remix the code of a JavaScript-powered Idea Generator to create your own random generator!

Find the Spring Microproject on Mouse Create and follow the steps to create random invention ideas. When you are done, share the link to your own custom generator and submit the project to your group. Don’t forget to enter the raffle on the last step for a chance to win a $25 gift card!

The deadline to submit is 5/31!
