Modify the Document Object Model (DOM) with JavaScript to make your web pages come to life!

The DOM is an object-oriented representation of the web page which can be modified with JavaScript to create interactive and dynamic web content.

  • Select elements from the page
  • Update elements on the page
  • Apply styling to the style attribute
  • Track user interactions with click events and keyboard events
  • Move and manipulate page elements with JavaScript

Create a dynamic and interactive game that detects element collision and adds to the score. Move your element to hit the other elements on the page, score, and see how new elements are created with a maximum number from the code. Learn basic JavaScript game structure that can be extended to build your own games and more.
