The final stages of preparation are ending and the website has been updated to reflect this year’s work.
The kids started their work in the late summer, when they spent time learning the GameMaker programming language. Some of the kids also learned to make animations with AnimeStudio.
The kids used the month of September to complete a beta version of their project in anticipation of the Mini-Maker Faire Presentation on October 3rd and 4rth. The kids did great and made some new friends! The kids wrote a video game to teach other kids how to move from Bystander to Ally to Stop Bullying. The kids designed t-shirts that integrated a unity hand symbol and used the color pink for anti-bullying. Across Canada, kids wear pink shirts as a statement against bullying. Their research and the game are available on the 2014 First Class Page.
The kids started working on the robot game right after the Mini-Maker Faire. They had some great ideas for their robot this year. Those files will be published after the Vermont Qualifier.
