2011: Design With Games @ Jewish Community Center of Manhattan

Design With Games is a course that introduces adolescents to interactive media via the visual programing language 'Game Salad'. Throughout this course, youth will cultivate systems and computational thinking skills as they engage in an intensive, student-centered gaming experience. Working with found images and sound, participants will design a narrative and framework for their own games. By the end of Design With Games, youth will be able to understand the facets of game design, know how to create their own with the software program, and engage in disseminating their discoveries with the class and within the online arcade community of Game Salad.
