This experience allows Girls to discuss their favourite games and explore what it would be like to build an off-keyboard controller to play them. Each Gamemaking with Scratch & MaKey MaKey workshop has the same flow, but different activities. Come and create a new game every time!
Together, we’ll learn all about basic circuitry through the use of a MaKey MaKey, an invention kit that allows anyone to build physical circuits through a micro controller, a set of alligator clips, and anything that is conductive. We’ll connect things like aluminum foil, Play-Doh, and fruit to our computers and test out how these objects can act as an extension of our keyboard.
Girls will then pair up and use Scratch, a beginner-friendly programming environment for game design, to build their very own game. Then, they’ll explore how they can take their game off the keyboard and create game controllers that players can use for a more interactive and challenging experience.
