Three Thing Game@School

Not all the games have to involve cheese and crackers, although if they did the sample project we've given out  would be even more useful......

Next week we are taking Three Thing Game in a new direction. There'll still be three things, and a game, but we won't have students writing games. Instead we've got teams from seven local schools coming into the university for a one day Three Thing Game@School event.

Teams will be writing games using the Pygame framework, based on content taught to their teachers in the Wrestling With Python courses that we have been running since last October.

Each school has been given a set of things for their teams to choose from and on Tuesday 15th of July they'll be coming into the university to sit down at a machine in one of our computer suites and make it happen.  We've got judges from the games industry and sponsorship from ebuyer, along with special breakout sessions if the coding pressure gets too much...

It's going to be great fun...
