Think Camp | PlayCraft Game Design with Minecraft | Micro - Grade 4 to Grade 6 | 10 July

Tue Jul 10, 07:30 - Tue Jul 10, 15:30
Parktown High School for Girls



Learn to create games and test them out with your friends in the world of MineCraft. In this Think Camp, we will explore the theory behind Game Design – asking ourselves, what makes a good game? We will build a series of simple games in MineCraft, learning and applying basic coding and level design skills. Typing experience is required for this Camp.

Think Camp

What is Think Camp?
Think Camp teaches key 21st century skills in fun and energising full day camps during school holiday periods. On Think Camp, computer work is interspersed with frequent snack breaks (three per day), outdoor games (weather permitting) and exciting competitions. Powerful thinking skills such as Design and Lean Thinking are taught throughout, using carefully designed activities that compliment computer work and give participants the tools needed to master the world of tomorrow.

What time?
We understand parents’ busy lives, and so we offer you the option of flexible drop off and pick up times. Participants can be dropped off anytime between 7h30am and 8h00am and collected between 15h00 and 15h30.

What should we bring?
Busy minds get hungry! We ask participants to bring along their favourite brain food so that they keep alert and awake.
All our venues have superb tech facilities and participants will be working on Windows PCs, so there is no need to bring any additional high-tech devices.

What happens at the end of the day? 
Participants are always eager to show off what they have been working on during the day and so we invite all parents to come and see their incredible work anytime between 15h00 or 15h30.
Participants can continue their awesome work at home! We encourage participants to bring their own flash drives so that they can save their work and keep creating!
