Electronic Game Design - Invader Defense Games (3rd-8th grade)
During the Electronic Game Design : Invader Defense classes, students will use Multimedia Fusion 2® to create their own video game. Whether students wish to fire marshmallows or missiles, they build a complete video game from start to finish. They program characters to survive a wave of enemy attacks in order to reach the next level. At the end of the class, students take home a copy of the game they create on a custom Engineering for Kids® thumb drive!
