I studied Computer Science at Rutgers University with a concentration in Software Engineering, and have been teaching myself web development - from creating personal websites to developing fully functional web applications. I also make music ~

Gerbil is a Java GUI-based IDE environment aimed at teaching children in upper elementary or middle school how to program in a fun and visual manner

The goal is to move an avatar through a randomized, solvable maze by inserting and deleting blocks of code

Along with given functions/actions, users are encouraged to also create their own

Press Play and watch the gerbil move through the maze

To complete each game, the gerbil must reach the water bottle while eating as many fruits as possible
