Event Details

A new course for educators about building interactive gaming experiences!

Interactive Game Design is a rapidly developing field that exists in the intersection of physical components and computer programming, where designers shape and construct new methods of gaming. In this workshop, educators will learn how to program basic game mechanics that integrate physical components.

Imagine constructing the next groundbreaking interactive experience such as Dance Dance Revolution or the Nintendo Wii. Youth will be able to unleash their creative potential to construct a gaming experience that will prime them for a game design pathway while practicing problem solving, iteration, and the design process.


After the workshop, you will be able to:

  • Plan out key components of a game such as level design
