Codebrite is a clever school holiday programme to develop coding skills, running again April 26 and 27 2016.
Designed for wanna-be developers aged 9 to 16, with no previous experience with programming, this Codebrite series encourages creative, fun, collective learning in a day long workshop running 9am till 3.30pm*
Developed and facilitated by David Thornycroft, Gamefroot the day-long workshop is designed to take participants through the process of making a video game from start to finish, using the Gamefroot Platform.
Through learning the principles of game coding, using the Script Editor and some core coding concepts, participants will move on to create their own games driven by scripts.
The Gamefroot Resources are designed around the New Zealand curriculum and NCEA Units and can be used to get credits that can go towards participants education.
*pack snacks, lunch and a drink there will be regular breaks to feed the brain!
