TechSAV Gamemakers Circle October Meeting
When: October 19th, 6-8 PM
Where: Bull Street Labs @ 2222 Bull Street
Join us this month for presentations on two great platforms for teaching coding to kids using video games and video game creation.
Yvonne Jouffrault will present her experiences using the CS First video game curriculum to teach 3rd and 4th graders to build video games using Scratch – an easy to use drag and drop programming tool that teaches coding logic. AND we will have a special guest – a 3rd grader who has been using the curriculum and built a few video games to show off.
Malcolm Howard will present Code Combat – an open source tool for teaching kids programming through gaming.
The Game Makers circle meets every month at Bull Street Labs. Join the TechSAV meetup group to get monthly notifications about this event.
Hang with game makers of all kinds, from professional digital artists and programmers to weekend Unity hackers and design students. And by “game” we mean all types of immersive experiences, from virtual reality to augmented reality to pen and paper experiences. If you like to create captivating ways to explore new worlds, you should join us!
The Savannah Game Maker’s Circle is the city’s first collective of game-makers, players and enthusiasts. We meet at 2222 Bull Street Labs at 6pm on the 3rd Thursday of every month. The group is suitable for gamers of all ages, and whether you‘re into video games, board games, card games, pen and paper games, party games or Hunger Games, it’s somewhere you definitely want to be. (Okay, maybe there won’t be much actual battling to the death.)
Join game fans who like talking game mechanics, software tools, etc., and really breaking down the art, science, and business of games.Join game fans who like talking game mechanics, software tools, etc., and really breaking down the art, science, and business of games.
