If you know our family, you know we are huge proponents of all things STEM. I have a background in technology and am a proud mom of two budding math wizards. If our kids were old enough, I’d snag these limited spots for a free video game design workshop at Frisco’s National Videogame Museum (NVM). The museum is teaming up with the National STEM Video Game Challenge and the Institute of Museum and Library Services. This free one-day workshop is Tuesday, July 19, 2016 from 1:00 PM to 4:00 PM for middle and high school students.
Students will have the opportunity to:
- Complete hands-on, minds-on, physical game design exercises
- Design original video games and modify existing games
- Play-test each other’s games to provide feedback
- Learn how to enter the National STEM Video Game Challenge
The workshop is BYOD or bring your own device. Machine requirements include a laptop computer capable of web browsing and running the latest version of Adobe Flash Player. Students will be using the Gamestar Mechanic™ game-based learning tool. If you would like to participate but do not have a laptop computer, no worries. Contact the team at NVM and they’ll do their best to accommodate you.
