MAKE A CONTROLLER TO PLAY CLASSIC VIDEO GAMES
Wednesday, 23 Jan 2019 and Thursday, 24 Jan 19
A 1 hour activity making a working push-button to play a “Classic” video game you can re-program! Interface the push-button to a Raspberry Pi computer’s input/output wiring to drive a video game character. Instead of children being limited to playing yet another video game, they can also make the game controller, colour & re-animate the game characters, and change the program through simple Scratch block coding. This is an introductory course to get a taste of learning about electronics and coding iconic games such as Space Invaders and Asteroids. Take home your creation at the end of the session.
