December 2022 Holiday Camp

For Ages 8 – 10

01

Day 1:

Introduction to Tynker and Spongebob Castle Defender

In this camp, students will get to create their own version of their Castle Defender game. The original version of Defend Your Castle is a browser game which requires the player to kill all enemy units before they destroy the player’s castle.

Students will learn about basic game design and fundamental theory of developing a game, in addition to having the opportunity to unleash their creativity as they create their own sounds, obstacles, score system and levels for their game!

In the first session students will start by designing their game with their favorite background and characters.

02

Day 2:

Introduction to programming concepts – conditionals and variables

In this session, students will focus on the enemies of the game. The concept of conditionals will be taught to students as students are required to program their main character to interact with different enemies in the game and create different visual or sound effects. The concept of variables will also be touched upon as the game requires a scoring system to make it more fun and engaging to the player.  

03

Day 3:

Final Touch-up and Presentation

Students will be tasked to complete their game from the past 2 days. They are encouraged to add in more obstacles and make their level more interesting. After editing their levels, they can then try out other students’ games as well as allow other students to play with their own game, gathering feedback and adjusting their game as such to make it more interactive and user-friendly. This session is mostly a fun and easygoing class for the students as they make final touches and polish their game. To wrap it all up, students will present their game to their fellow classmates who will critic their game once more so that they can further improve with the ideas/feedback provided, allowing them to understand the importance of game testing in game development.
