MINECRAFT EDUCATION & MAKECODE ARCADE WORKSHOP
The Microsoft Game Development will help students gain an understanding of what game development is, different types of digital games and how to use MS Minecraft Education and MS Makecode Arcade to code and create those games.
For the Minecraft Education segment, students will learn Minecraft design principles and how to code and create an openworld Minecraft game with game characters, NPCs that they can play individually or collaboratively.
For the Makecode Arcade segment, students will learn different game mechanics, how to create their own sprites and 2D retro-arcade games such as Space Invaders and Flappy Bird. More importantly, these platforms are free for students to continue using and practicing at home after the workshops. This enables students to continue their game development journey after successful conclusion of the workshop.
GAME DEVELOPMENT WORKSHOP
Students will gain an understanding of concepts such as game mechanics, visual and audio elements which will be applied through a project. The project work involves working on a game environment for a concurrent multi-player mode game.
