LPP Regional Computer Gaming Hackathon:
On February 9th, 2018 LPP students from SUNY Sullivan, and sister LLP schools Marist and Iona participated in an our Regional Computer Gaming Hackathon. This event consisted of several sessions. The first was the Game Jam and Hackathon session where students learned about game design and worked in teams to see what games design is all about. The second session was an Hour of Coding, that showed the students what the basic components of computer coding are. The final session was the Computer Activities Information session. This final part of the trip helped teachers and parents to gain an understanding of the curriculum resources available for the classroom as well as available after school activities and projects. During this event each team got to build their own game, present that game, and then have their game judged by a panel. The winning team walked a way with a cool prize.
