STEAM Design Challenge:
Your school is trying to raise money for a good cause and needs to create entertaining ways to raise money from people in the community. It is organising a festival day with raffles prizes and an arcade. The only problem is we don’t have any games for the arcade. Buying games would use up money that would be used to help our cause so you have been asked to design and create some games.
Be inspired by “Caines arcade’ to create your own arcade-style games and see how many players you can get! Don’t you wish you had an arcade in your school? Why not design one?
Use Makedo resources and recycled materials to create many arcade-style games for a school event.
You are a game designer and arcade owner.
People coming to your school event looking to play entertaining games and win prizes.
A School festival or event to raise money for a good cause.
The product will be a functioning set of arcade games.
