We’ve partnered up with BrainPOP to do a kick-off event for the National STEM Video Game Challenge. I’m pretty psyched about this event, and excited to work with teachers on how to use Gamestar Mechanic to model STEM subjects. Check out the flyer below and, if you’re in the NYC area, please come through!! (Also, it’s FREE!)
Attention New York City area educators! Are you ‘game’ for a free one day game design workshop with BrainPOP and Gamestar Mechanic? Then read on…
From the National STEM Video Game Challenge to ed tech conferences around the country, you’ve heard the buzz about student-made games. But how do you get started making that a reality in your classroom? On Saturday, November 12, join leading game designers, STEM content experts, and fellow educators for a day of professional development dedicated exclusively to this rapidly growing field of game design. Keynote speaker Michael Angst, Founder and CEO of educational game publisher E-Line Media, kicks things off with a talk that illuminates the key elements of game design. Then, head to hands-on workshops in which you’ll use curricular content from BrainPOP and the easy-to-use game design tool Gamestar Mechanic to develop your very own game. You’ll leave armed with great ideas and ready to tackle that National STEM Video Game Challenge with your students. Breakfast, lunch, and other goodies will be provided.
When: Saturday, November 12 (National Gaming Day!)
9:30am – 4:00pm
Where: BrainPOP HQ
