Program and play your own video game with Kodu.

Did you know that the video game industry is estimated to be worth £55 billion and the UK’s video game industry is the third largest in the world?  Would you like to be a part of it?

Well now you can.

Students will use a graphical programming environment to program and build games.  Programs will be created on the PC, using an Xbox controller allowing rapid design iteration.  Students will create a range of terrains, worlds and characters, controlling the character’s movement, sound and vision using an intuitive icon-based programming language.

Kodu lets kids create games on the PC and Xbox via a simple visual programming language. Kodu can be used to teach creativity, problem solving, storytelling, as well as programming. Anyone can use Kodu to make a game, young children as well as adults with no design or programming skills.

This event is ticketed.

This venue is both wheelchair accessible and has wheelchair accessible toilets.
