Junior STEAM Experience

Do you enjoy science, technology, engineering, art, or math?  If so, then join us online for the Junior STEAM Experience June 21st to 25th, from 9 am to 4 pm!  Students entering grades 6 to 8 will learn about tabletop game design through hands-on activities, have breaks, and time for fun activities. 

Tabletop Game Design - Instructor: Jay Little

Time to get your game on — your tabletop game, that is! Join our award-winning game design instructor for a workshop focused on the fundamentals of fun. Come learn about board games, card games, and other tabletop games through a blend of discussions and activities. Work with others to brainstorm ideas, create quick prototypes, and solve puzzles and challenges. Not only will you see how games are designed and developed, but you will also use that information to create some games of your own! Each attendee will be provided with a kit that includes all the bits and pieces you need to start making a game just like the pros do. And afterward, you can use the kit to continue working on your creation — or create brand new games of your own!
