A go-kart built from leftover toys in a playroom, racing around a track of building blocks? Only in Electronic Game Design: Racing Games—Kooky Karts! We will use the Engineering Design Process to create a storyboard to capture our awesome designs and the rules of play for our game. Then, we will use Clickteam Fusion 2.5® to bring our storyboard to life with programming. At the end of the unit, everyone takes home a working Windows-compatible game (Clickteam Fusion 2.5® does not support Mac or Android operating systems). No discounts or vouchers.
