Summary

#kidscreate

Kids love to create, and they can make some incredible things using digital content creation tools. In this hands-on session, we'll explore two game-based tools designed specifically for classroom use that help students learn the principles of digital design, engineering, programming and critical thinking while making amazing stuff. Participants can try their hand at game design with Gamestar Mechanic or learn the fundamentals of coding with Tynker. No prior experience required. BYOD!
