Teens will work in pairs for two days using BloxelTM kits to design their own video game app. Each kit contains various colored blocks that teens will place onto a board to design the game levels and characters. Once the level is designed with the blocks, each team will take a photo with an iPad (provided). The process is then repeated to design their character. The pre-installed app will help to animate each of these objects. The last day will allow teens to test out other team’s creations. No registration is needed for this event.
