Making games in school

For the last few months the Flip team have been hard at work, helping to run game-making sessions in a high school in Sussex. Three classes of Year 7 IT students worked with the Neverwinter Nights 2 toolset from May through July to make their own video games. The students were enthusiastic about the project, and after-school IT sessions were over-subscribed with students wanting to continue work on their games.

Now that the schools have finished for summer, the team are getting ready to run a week-long game-making workshop for children at the University of Sussex. All of these sessions are helpful for observing how children respond to the task of game creation, so that Flip can be designed to meet the needs of this age group.
