New MicroProject: Code In the Blanks

Code in the Blanks MicroProject
This month we’re going to make playing with code just as easy as filling in the blanks! Introducing the Homework Excuse Generator, a simple excuse-making machine you can remix. Click a button and it creates a random reason for why your homework is missing. It uses javascript to randomly match words from lists to create an excuse. But why stop there? Using very little coding, you can make this project into a generator that can randomly fill in the blanks for anything you can think of.
