Are you searching for a way to engage your students in live synchronous learning? Science North is pleased to offer a series of new e-workshops to engage your students. Supported by the Government of Canada, this FREE interactive e-workshop is delivered to students using video conferencing technology. With links to the mathematics and science curriculum, your students will learn about coding in a fun and hands-on way, without having to leave the classroom!
About the e-workshop:
Using laptops or iPads*, this intro to game design program will give students the fundamental skills required to create a simple game that incorporates movements, scoring and interactions between characters. In learning these skills, students will rely heavily on the cartesian plane, explore positive and negative integers, and be introduced to variable numbers. By the end of the workshop students will have a functioning game that is unique to their creative ideas.
*CAN USE PORTABLE LAPTOPS OR IPADS, PLEASE CONFIRM WHEN BOOKING.
