About the Event
FIND OUT WHAT TO DO ONCE YOUR STUDENTS HAVE OUTGROWN VISUAL SCRIPTING
All your staff are invited to a free information afternoon at The Entrance Public School next Thursday, March 21st from 3:30pm to 5pm.
Attendees will be introduced to the world's most popular coding and game development environment - Unity®.
Game development builds STEAM skills and addresses many of the syllabus outcomes in the Technology Mandatory, IST, Industrial Technology Multimedia, iSTEM, IPT and SDD. This includes coding, design and multimedia, problem solving, user interface development, creating and debugging algorithms through to compiling and deploying applications.
WHAT IS UNITY?
The Unity® software is the ultimate STEAM hub where artists, designers, coders and developers come together and combine programming, art and design, 3d modelling, physics and more to create apps and games for more than 20 platforms.
Please visit www.unity3d.com for more information on the world’s most popular commercial grade game engine.
WHO IS PRESENTING?
The 90 minute presentation will be conducted by Jeff Ayling, the only Unity® Certified Instructor in Australia who has worked with more than 1000 schools and over 50,000 students. Jeff runs a NESA endorsed 6 hour Unity® PD workshop called Coding + Game Development with Unity®.
This workshop will change the way your school educates students by making coding the most enjoyable part of the curriculum.
What you will learn:
This information afternoon has been designed for absolute beginners through to experienced programmers and covers a lot more than just coding:
• Learn how coding is used to create commercial quality games with Unity® ( www.unity3d.com ) - the most popular game development engine.
• Watch as a commercial quality virtual world with characters, and AI vehicles is created LIVE.
• Watch as code written in C# is used to create spawnpoints, loops, functions, variables and manipulate physics and much more.
We have all seen the types of games students are able to create with Scratch. Once you have seen what your students will be able to create with Unity®, you will be amazed.
Students can create commercial quality virtual worlds which can be explored with a character, car or plane, erupting volcanoes which can explode with flying rocks by adding only a few lines of code.
Watch as a project is created live with characters and vehicles, ask questions and discover why thousands of schools are moving from Scratch to Unity®.
This presentation is conducted by a Unity® Certified Instructor
