Learning Studio makers at Winterboro High School in Alpine, Alabama have become video game creators. Students started by playing a variety of video games on different gaming systems to get ideas for their own games and to explore the question, “what makes us want to keep playing?” Next, students built their own games. Students used AgentCubes online to build and code a multi-level video game and designed their own controllers using a block-based coding CAD platform called BlocksCAD. The finished controllers were 3D printed and then programmed using the Makey Makey kit. At the end of the project, students had created their own custom controllers for the video games they designed.
