Creative Workshop for Children: My First Video Game
11 Nov | SATURDAY | HUB385
12 Nov| SUNDAY | HUB385
Petračićeva ulica 4
CLOSED FOR PUBLIC
The aim of the workshop is to present the process of making video games to the youngest participants in a very simple way, with the help of pre-prepared materials. The process will be explained using a simple software for the development of video games, which enables combining visual and sound elements into a simple interactive unity and is primarily intended for children. The participants will learn how to use the increasingly popular method for computer programming – MIT Scratch. Scratch is a programming language whose input doesn’t require the complex syntax of the modern programming languages, but allows children to learn about programming through arranging simple, cause-and-effect elements. At the end of the workshop, the participants will create a simple game on their own.
