This class will have a dedicated Students of Hogwarts theme and embraces the â€œMakerâ€ theme that has inspired maker spaces around the world as well as the Maker Faire. Maker classes are where kids create their own working models, games and gadgets using raw and recycled materials and basic engineering and technology. Projects will be themed around the Students of Hogwarts classes such as potions, herbology, care of magical creatures and wand making.
Students in this class will get an in-depth look at how games are conceived and created by conceptualizing their own games in a game planning document. They will consider environment, characters, attributes, strategy, obstacles and challenges while considering what makes popular games successful. This class spend more time focusing on how video games are designed and built; it is an excellent way to teach the type of work game designers do when they create a video game. In addition to planning their games, students will then execute their own game design in Scratch. The class should end with each student having some example of their game design as well as a documented game plan.
Students will learn the basic elements of a comic book and create their own plot, setting, and characters. Comic Books consist of comic art in the form of sequential panels that represent individual scenes to create a story. Students will learn how to develop characters into a functional plot using the key elements of comic books, such as panels, speech bubbles, text and characters. Students will learn how to keep stories visual, about different art styles, character sketching and plot development using their own creativity.
