Let’s Make a Game Session – In Person
- A block of 4×1 hour sessions to engage up to 10 family groups/clients per sessions. So a maximum of 40 when working with individuals around 90 if done with family groups.
- Staff will support the attendees to create their own basic computer game they can then play at home or even add to.
- Looking at what programming/coding is, and how a computer runs code
- A legacy website of all the games made at the centre will be available to play online (with original file available to download to add to)
(Requirements: Tables and chairs for participants, Large TV or projector screen can be useful.)
- AUDIENCE: *FILL IN THE AUDIENCE YOU PARTICULARLY WANT TO TARGET*
- HOW IT WILL ENGAGE: The “pull” of being able to make your own game and have it published online will engage with a gaming interest. In the session a high tutor to student ratio will mean tutors will help keep student’s engagement high throughout the session.
- HOW IT WILL IMPACT: The achievement of producing their own video game and ability to play it later will have lasting impact on the attendees.
- CHALLENGING SCIENCE ATTITUDES/STEREOTYPES: Makes coding more accessible and helps bring down the barriers of individuals in thinking they could be a programmer.
