Teaching Mobile Game Campers

Mobile Quest 2010 from Institute of Play on Vimeo.

I had an amazing week (July 25-29) working with in-coming 5th graders at the Institute of Play.  I worked along side 4 teams of instructors to help the kids design and produce a mobile iPhone game within 1 week!

It was an extremely condensed timeline, but the kids got an intro to game design, core game mechanics, programming, and location based gaming.  My role as the Game Designer in Residence was to work between all the classes to help the kids think about the game mechanics, storyline and ultimately programming of their games on iPhones using the open source software ARIS.
