Welcome STEAM Machines,

We have the pleasure to introduce you to the Musical Video Games course. We think of video games as the epitome of STEAM’s cross-disciplinary nature.

In this course, you’ll learn about music, coding, science, physics, maths, visual art, and game design. All lessons are closely tied to the National Curriculum, for the perfect learning experience.

We use the Microsoft Arcade platform, part of MakeCode, so you can safely work on an anonymous cloud, just through your browser. Save your code, share it, build together, embed it, and obviously play it straight from the browser!

This course is particularly suited for the Year 5 and 6, but we should mention that the winner of the last GameJam we run, was a Year 2, who won against Year 9s!!!

Try the first lesson on us and see how you get on – we look forward to hosting you online and guiding you through all these wonderful adventures!
