This week’s workshop in our computing at home teaching series is Part-Baked Games, a workshop that will introduce your little gamer to the concept of game mechanics.
Game mechanics are the rules that govern how a game is played and more importantly won or lost!
We’re here to support teachers, parents and anyone who loves computer science with our variety of ‘unplugged’ playful computing* activities that use everyday household objects, so grab the playdough and dust off that jigsaw!
*Unplugged computing is the collective noun given to activities that are designed to teach computational thinking skills, computing concepts, procedures and processes without the use of any digital technology. For example, activities may make use of resources such as playing cards, string and playdough.
