Create-A-VideoGame Summer Camp
July 30, 31 Aug 1, 2
4 days of creating and playing video games made from Scratch!
Afternoon snacks included. Players will take home a copy of Scratch and their games on a flash drive.
Use artistic skills and learn new programming tools to make your very own video game from Scratch!
Scratch is a programming language where children can program interactive media such as stories, games, and animation. As children create with Scratch, they learn to think creatively, work collaboratively, and reason systematically. Scratch is designed and maintained by the Lifelong Kindergarten group at the MIT Media Lab.
Young Carter Wills tag teams with Thi at Delight to teach students how to use Scratch to make their ideas come to life. Kids will make digital art and later design them into games, starting with simple tools and expanding to advanced options as the class progresses. A Games Expo on the last day will give customers and others a chance to play games with “tokens,” which will can be exchanged for quarters. Campers will keep the money they make from their games. Students will take their games home on a flash drive at the end of the class.
