ArcadeLAB will see young people aged 12-14 progress through a variety of tutorials aimed at developing their skills and techniques in building their own 80s style arcade game using Microsoft Makecode. After gaining a grasp of the basics and some inspiration, students will then design and create their own game!

We can supply tablets/laptops however participants are encouraged to bring their own devices. Free WiFi is available in the library.
