Every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday (Starting 26th July – Ending 1st September)
Junior Game Creators is for kids who want to look deeper at the games they play.
Over the course of our sessions in person and online we’ll learn about what makes games like Minecraft, FIFA and Mario Bros. so popular before handing over the creation tools to our gamers. We task our Junior Game Creators with designing their own versions of these amazing games in Scratch, the programming software that is now part of the national computing curriculum.
If you cannot attend one of our workshops in person then we have a fun online computer science club for budding Junior Game Creators. Each month you will receive cool computer science projects. If you know a budding game developer our monthly projects will encourage their digital creativity and give your kids real projects to nurture their interest in computer science in a fun and entertaining way.
Junior Game Creator Workshops are run in schools, libraries and other venues as well as in our mobile class rooms known as the Gamewagons ™ .
If there’s not a workshop nearby, or if you can’t wait until the next one, we can bring Junior Game Creators to you! Using our state-of-the-art Gamewagon vehicles, we can run a workshop for up to eight children, right on your doorstep! Take a look at the photos to the right and see our Junior Game Creators in action.
We’re always hard at work planning our next Junior Game Creators workshops. If you can’t wait to get your kids creating, get in touch and we can bring a workshop to you! Below are the workshops we have scheduled to take place in the upcoming summer school holidays.
Timing: Each workshop starts at 10am and finishes at 3pm with an hour for lunch.
What to bring? All the kids need to bring is their imagination, creativity, laptop (if they have one, we can provide if required) and a packed lunch.
What do they do? These sessions are not just about code. By learning how to create games we aim to boosts the skills like literacy, numeracy, creativity, leadership, problem solving, teamwork, communication, perseverance, the ability to work together towards a goal. We encourage them to go off piste and learn by doing.
How much? The cost for a full day is £45 or £80 for two days and £120 for three days. Each session is managed by a qualified, DBS checked and inspiring Game Experience Manager.
Kids learning more than just code by making their own games, genius! Do you know a wannabe Junior Game Creator?
