This workshop for kids aged 7 to 13 is intended to teach the participants how to make their own video games. The workshop employs a simple software for creating video games that allows us to combine visual and sound elements into an interactive whole. The participants will get a handle on the increasingly popular tool for learning programming, MIT Scratch, through which they will independently create a simple game.
