Crazy Mazes: A parent’s guide to computing at home
Following on from last week’s workshop, App in a Day, this week’s workshop in our Computing at home teaching series is Crazy Mazes, a workshop that will teach your children how to create their own maze style game.
This workshop is perfect for children aged 7 -14 years.
Part 1 of the workshop will introduce the concept of programming.
- To begin, students will find out what a programmer does
- Following this we will find out about the need for clear instructions through a series of unplugged activities (unplugged activities require no tech to take part)
Part 2 of the workshop will teach your child how to make a maze game using the game making software Construct 3.
Construct 3 is free and works in your internet browser so there is no need to download anything prior to the workshop.
As part of this we will learn how to:
- Create characters
- Design different levels for the game
- Add events so that different characters interact with each other
I hope your little learners enjoy Crazy Mazes! please do get in touch with me at email@example.com if you have any comments or feedback on the workshop and don't forget to check out all our past workshops, here.
