Building Particle Simulators for Teens

Friday, September 9, 2016 – 4:00 p.m.

Teens ages 12-19 are invited to further explore Game Maker and build a particle simulation program in another engaging, innovative workshop by game design and coding instructor, Ean Moore: Building Particle Simulators – Game Design and Coding with Ean Moore. Game Makers is basically a gentle introduction to coding specifically for those interested in designing games because users can get a game up and running without writing complicated code.

Moore is a Los-Angeles based instructor dedicated to inspiring students to embrace STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) careers. He teaches complex topics through dynamic, interactive workshops that emphasize teamwork. Ean explains that game design is “fascinating enough to easily grasp the attention of children, but versatile enough to establish life long careers in a variety of fields; game design is an excellent platform to inspire children (and adults) to embrace the many guises of computer science and digital art through video games.”

Computer literacy and keyboarding skills are required for this workshop. Previous experience with coding and Game Maker is desirable. This program is free and generously sponsored by the Friends of the Library.
