Did you know that every second of every day you have an elephant's-worth of weight on your shoulders? You don’t notice it, but it’s always there, and it’s caused by…air! The air around us is always pushing on us, with almost 15 pounds on every square inch of our body. We are literally being Crushed by Air! Come see the science behind this natural and everyday phenomenon. This assembly includes the Air-Zooka, cans crushed by air, human-size shrink wrap, and more. For grades 4 and up.
(age 12-19) We'll be putting everything together from the last month - game theory, sprites, and music - to make a quick game. Didn't make it to one of the previous sessions? That's okay - we'll have lots of materials for you to use in your game!
Megaman has the best music of any video game and the whole game was made with a few KB of ram and a whole lot of effort. We're going to make our own 8 bit music using virtual instruments (like an NES sound emulator) and FL studio.
(all ages) It's a game day palooza! We'll explore game mechanics, create hacks of ol' standards, even make our own games! It will be fun for the whole family, but no unaccompanied adults or kids, please!
