Over 490 JCPS Students Participate in free Microsoft MakeCode Arcade Course

Updated: Sep 16, 2022

MakeCode Arcade is a virtual program for 3rd to 7th grade classrooms. In this workshop, over 490 students (who we call game developers) used block coding to create games with MakeCode Arcade. Students learned about the game design concept of sprites and the computer science concepts of coordinates and variables.

Students completed two coding tutorials to build games introducing them to the fundamentals of MakeCode Arcade.

At the end of each session, students found inspiration through playing each other’s games. By publishing and recording links for the games they create, they may continue playing or working on them after the workshop.

Future of Work is now taking requests for future sessions. To learn more click here.
