Sponsored by Microsoft, YouthSpark Programs get kids of all ages coding games and apps, creating digital art, powering up their study skills, and having a blast in the process.
Work with new friends and learn how to build and experiment with cool games and fun online sports activities. First, learn how to use Turtle to move, turn, pick up objects and change speed on-screen. Then check out KoduMan, a robot in action, and find out how to make one.
You’ll also get to code games on your own, like air-hockey or mini-golf. Next, try out games with other attendees in a Coding Showcase. You’ll hear all about how to remix, create add-ins and improve player controls. If you want, feature your game on the Kodu Game Lab Community site for all to play.
By the end of this workshop, participants will be able to:
- Learn how to use Kodu, and (optionally) TouchDevelop software
- Apply new features and capabilities to resolve challenges within various activities
- Have fun engaging with other attendees
