The CoderDojo Brighton experience!
Do you ever wish you knew how to make games as well as program them – well this is the place for you!
We help and encourage young people from 6 to 16 to develop the skills to make their own games!
We can help you learn:
· Unity (which lots of 3D games are based on),
· Scratch where you can easily make lots of cool games,
· Python and C# which are the back-bone programming languages for gaming along with lots of other cool packages
· We also help you work out how to get the best from your Arduino or Raspberry Pi!
As well as our normal mentor supported session for Brighton Digital Festival we have some special talks and projects:
· Katy Travis: 'Use of visual tools in Unity to make low poly games with little coding/artistic skill' (11-12pm)
· Alice Hinton-Jones and John O'Reilly: 'Educational path to games, an artist perspective and a Computer Science perspective' (1 - 2pm)
· Eric Clack: How to make games in Python! (10.30am - 12.30pm)
· Darren Barnett: Making 2D action games with Construct3 (it’s like Scratch meets Unity!) (12:30pm to 2:30pm)
CoderDojo Brighton meets every other Saturday at Brighton University - see our page for details
