Gamemaking with Scratch: Escape Game
9-12 + GuardianRegister
Why learn about Gamemaking?
From Checkers, to Super Mario Bros, to Angry Birds… we think games are awesome!
Kids Learning Code is excited to combine the power of play with basic design and programming skills in this hands-on workshop. This experience offers learners the opportunity to create their very own digital games in a super fun environment.
Using Scratch, a beginner level programming environment, imagination will come to life in a new and digitally engaging form. Learners will also be introduced to Scratch's amazing online community, sloganed: "Imagine, Program, Share," where they will have the opportunity to upload their game for anyone on the web to download and play!
At the end of the workshop, each learner will also have a chance to customize and beta test their game with their peers.
None! This workshop is designed for beginners.
