Open Division (Any Massachusetts or Neighboring State Middle/High School Students):

Welcome!

Massachusetts and Regional middle and high school students compete over the best Processing application written in under 5 kilobytes of code (must also be compatible with Processing.js). The competition will be split into two divisions: The Open Division and the Kapparate Students Division. Any current Massachusetts Middle/High school student can participate in the open division. Change as of 10/3/2013, we are also inviting neighboring states: New Hampshire, Vermont, Rhode Island, and Connecticut.

Recent Kapparate students may enter in the Kapparate Division regardless of whether they are a Massachusetts / Regional resident.

Getting Started

After downloading Processing, take a look at the examples on the reference page for sketches that work in both Processing and Processing.js. Also try the links on the reference page for 3rd party sites.

Take a look at past 1-week class projects at the showcase. Also take a look at projects done by the online community at openprocessing.org (includes college student and adults' projects)
