Game Dev Lab: Retro Platformer 8-Bit Bloxels  (morning)

Get ready to build your own version of Mario Bros.!  In the world of Bloxels you can build your own universe all by using eight color block cubes. Each block has a specific gameplay trait and some can be configured. Create backgrounds & characters. Animate your characters and give them power-ups. With Bloxels, you become the artist, writer, designer and director of your own retro-style video game!

Art + Design Lab: Board Game Design + Play  (afternoon)

Get unplugged and come join us for some tabletop board game fun! This lab is split into 2 phases: exploration phase and design phase. Students will explore several forms of play. Abstract (Azul), Cooperative (Star Wars Unlock!) Drafting (Sushi Go), Party (Dixit & Zombie Dice), Real Time (5-Minute Dragon), Roll-and-Write (Rolling Realms), and Social Deduction (One Night Ultimate Werewolf). Each gamer brings unique experiences and strengths, and we encourage them to foster their leadership and social skills through exploring different strategies both on their own and together. Playing games will help them in their development of their very own designed game. During the design phase, they will have the option of making a board, card game or dice game with decided themes and mechanisms based on what they learned from playing games. Everyone will have a chance to play-test their very own tabletop creation.
