Looking for fun, new ways to teach your subject? Try our popular outreach program that can engage students in any topic using game design and play.~What is it?~In this program, students take on the role of game designers to create an 8-bit arcade-style videogame about a chosen topic. Learning about game mechanics and structure, students code their own game using a fun and easy-to-use coding platform. By breaking down a topic into various parts and communicating it to others through a game, students can gain a deeper understanding of their chosen subject.~Course options~We offer two versions of the program with plenty of flexibility to tailor to your needs e.g. time, topic, year level.~Never coded? No problem.~The coding platform – MakeCode Arcade – uses a system of tool drawers and drag and drop blocks so users can quickly and easily learn game design in a free browser-based environment which is colourful and welcoming.~What topics do we normally cover?~The program links strongly with the Year 7 curriculum but can easily be adapted to any year level or topic.Book now: bit.ly/STEMarcBNTS#WhittleseaTS #BNTS #STEM #STEAM #STEMarcade #coding #gamedesign #gaming #education #remotelearning @WhittleseaTS ...
