Suitable for kids aged 9–14

Make your own rules. Design, develop, and code games in this fun 9-week after-school learning adventure.

It’s easy. For ages 9 to 14 (contact us to discuss game makers who are keen to attend outside this age range).

In your nine-week course you’ll:

  • identify games you love and your favourite bits of Te Papa to inspire your new game concept
  • design, develop, and code your game – you can work from home between sessions if you like
  • learn collaboratively, using your fellow learners as game testers and troubleshooters  
  • publish your game to share it with friends and family.

No coding experience necessary. Just bring a sense of wonder, a love of stories, and a passion for puzzles.

This workshop is delivered in collaboration with Gamefroot, a resident of our Mahuki innovation incubator.

Bookings essential. Sessions cannot be purchased separately.
