In this brief introduction to programming using TouchDevelop, students create a chatting robot (chat-bot) designed to confuse the friends in to thinking that they are talking to a real person. Also introduces students to Alan Turing and the concept Artificial Intelligence.
In this introduction to programming, students will create a “Magic 8-Ball” game. The game will work by asking the user to input a yes / no style question and will respond with one of it’s classic predictions such as: “Yes”, “Most likely” and “Outlook not so good”.
