In this virtual workshop youโ€™ll learn to turn everyday objects, like the floor of your home or your favorite doll, into a game controller using Makey Makey, a prototyping tool that allows you to turn pretty much anything into computer controllers. In order to create your custom game and controller, youโ€™ll also learn the basics of coding using Scratch, an MIT developed drag and drop programming language. Practice using loops and conditionals to create game elements like a scoreboard or a leveled playing experience. At the end of camp you'll have your own custom game and controller to play at home!โฃโฃ

My son had so much fun in his class at Design Hive. He learned so much in a short amount of time, but I donโ€™t even think he noticed because he was having so much fun! His teacher was very fun and patient. He looked forward to his camp time every day!
