DAY 1 - GET CREATIVE: LEARN HOW TO CREATE YOUR VERY OWN GAME USING SCRATCH!

IMAGINE BECOMING A GAMER! THIS DAY WILL BEGIN WITH YOU USING ADOBE ILLUSTRATOR TO CREATE A TITLE AND MAIN CHARACTER FOR YOUR GAME. THIS WILL THEN BE DEVELOPED TO PROGRAMME YOUR VERY OWN GAME USING SCRATCH. THE DAY WILL BE ROUNDED OFF BY TRANSFORMING YOUR GAME BRAND INTO MERCHANDISE THAT YOU CAN TAKE HOME WITH YOU. WE WILL USE OUR INDUSTRIAL HEAT PRESS TO cREATE PRINTED T-SHIRTS AND MUGS. THIS IS AN IDEAL OPPORTUNITY TO LEARN NEW SKILLS AND/ OR DEVELOP UNDERSTANDING WITHIN A QUICKLY EMERGING MARKET AND ONE THAT PROMISES TO HAVE LOTS OPPORTUNITIES WITHIN THE FUTURE.

IMAGINE CREATING YOUR VERY OWN JIGSAW. THIS IS WHAT YOU WILL BE DOING TODAY. YOU WILL BE USING 2D DESIGN SOFTWARE TO DESIGN AND LASER CUT YOUR BESPOKE IMAGE ONTO 9MM PLYWOOD. THIS IMAGE COULD BE A PHOTO OF YOUR FAMILY OR EVEN CARRY ON WITH THE THEME FROM THE PREVIOUS DAY AND CREATE A JIGSAW RELATED TO THE GAME THAT YOU HAVE CREATED. THE CNC ROUTER WILL THEN BE USED TO CUT OUT YOUR JIGSAW SHAPES.

DAY 3 - SAY GOODBYE TO 2D AND LET’S CONCENTRATE ON 3D PRINT

THE FOCUS FOR DAY 3 WILL BE 3D PRINTING. KNOWLEDGE AND UNDERSTANDING WILL BE GAINED WITH 3D MODELLING SOFTWARE PACKAGES SHOWING YOU HOW YOU CAN CREATE YOUR OWN DESIGNS READY TO BE 3D PRINTED.
