December 2022 Holiday Camp

For Ages 5 – 7

Have some fun learning to code by creating a Whack A Mole Game. You make your own rules! At the end of the workshop, students will learn the art of game design and create a simple yet interactive game using their creativity and imagination.

01

 

Day 1:

In this session, students will be introduced to Tynker, an educational programming platform aimed at teaching children how to make games. They will learn how to design an online rendition of the well-known carnival game, Whack-A-Mole and customize to their own liking.

Students will be taught the proper arrangement of block-based programming and basic programming concepts in order to create an interactive game. E.g. For their characters to disappear when clicked and appear again in their game, students will learn the functions of show, wait and hide blocks and when to use them, while learning about the concept of randomness.

Day 2:

In this session, we will touch on the mathematical concept of x and y coordinates in order to control how characters move and where they are positioned throughout their game. Concepts taught from the last lesson will also be recapped as they will continue to utilise these coding blocks for an interactive game, such as the random block for the ‘mole’ to always appear at a different position after it has been clicked.

Students will also be given time and a chance for them to unleash their creativity as they add different characters to make the game more fun, as well as further coding for increased interactions between the player and their game. At the end of this workshop, students will get a chance to play with their classmates’ creations.
