What to expect

Can you read a video game? How does choice affect the way a story is told?

Learn about how coding is used to give players the ability to choose their path and how to use the coding engine Twine to create their own interactive narrative.

Discover the most interesting ways to create a story and find out why video games are the biggest revolution in fiction since the invention of the novel.

All equipment, materials and light refreshments will be provided, but they will need to bring a packed lunch.

Testimonial from our previous coding workshop:

February Half-Term 2022

"It was friendly. I learned and had fun, and you could make your own project. It was about programming, something I enjoy. We also got to learn the history of videogame."
