Let’s Make a Game Session – In Person

event description

  • 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.)


  • 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.
