This summer, we taught game design to kids 8-12 years old at Montclair Art Museum. Our first session ended with a big reception, where we set up 15 computers in a lab running a selection of the games that they made.
It was a lot of fun to see other kids & parents come in and play their games. At certain points there were just tons of people in there, playing games made by kids.
Almost all of the kids have never made a game before, so we were really happy with the results. Some of the kids even made as many as 10 digital games over the course of the class.
We had a great time teaching- hopefully we’ll be able to do more things like this, and for all age groups. :]
