Game Controller Workshop
March 12, 2016 @ 12:00 pm - 3:00 pm$5.00 – $35.00
Join us for a fun afternoon of creative making. In this parent-child workshop, we will use materials you can find around the house, including food, and Makey Makey kits, to control games and other programs on the computer. Want to use a sword to hit stuff in Minecraft? We can do it! Want to stick your fingers in water to control a platform game? Got it! Want to poke fruit to play music? Done!
For this workshop, we want parents to stay with the kids, to help them create their controllers! We will provide a computer with several games for each child to use, controller materials, basic instructions to get started, and inspiration and help to build more complex controllers. You bring the kids, at least one parent, and a Makey Makey kit for each child. If you don’t want to buy it online, you can get one at Michael’s (they almost always have a 40% off coupon) and Barnes & Noble.
Lunch (pizza), snacks, and drinks will be provided for this event. Arrive hungry!
