This club is all about making, remixing and inventing.  Using Nintendo Switch, we will explore how to remix the ready made kits and discover what we can to in the Toy-Con Garage. Much like taking apart an old radio and repurposing it, we will experiment with reprogramming different Nintendo Labo programs and making something new. The last session will include a show and tell of he inventions created.

BLOXELS STORY GAME DESIGN

SATURDAYS 10AM-12PM (GR. 3-4)

$90

Turn your story into a video game.  Over the 6 weeks, we will be using Bloxels to build games where students are the writers, artists, designers, and developers of their own interactive stories.  The Bloxels 13x13 gameboard and blocks allow students to create levels, characters, and any other art they may have in mind. Using iPads and the Bloxels app, students will instantly turn their physical creations into a digital game.  In the app, they can edit and customize everything - what it looks like and how elements interact and behave. On the last session of clubs we will have open house to show off the awesome story game creations.
