    Key Stage 2 - Years 5 & 6

    Norwich Gaming Festival Day

    Wed 24 May | 9.45am - 2.30pm | The Forum, Norwich | Free

    Thu 25 May (SOLD OUT) | 9.45am - 2.30pm | The Forum, Norwich | Free


    Students can bring gaming levels and ideas to life in this session for the whole class, and discover some of the magic of GameMaker. Students will see first-hand how changing a single number can affect how high a player can jump and how fast they can run as we build ourselves a unique gaming adventure together.


    Students will use GarageBand to create noises and soundtracks to complement their gaming ideas working with Laboratory Media Education.


    Students can get their hands on loads of gaming content in the Get Gaming Gallery from retro arcade consoles to brand new games. They can see the progression of the games in the History of Gaming exhibition and find out more about the industry from Norwich University of the Arts, the University of East Anglia and Access to Music.
