Event Details


 

If you are looking for an introduction to game design, then this is the workshop for you! In this Halloween-themed workshop, we’ll get an introduction to using Twine: an open-source tool for telling interactive, nonlinear stories! Twine uses uses CSS and HTML5 - the backbone of many websites.

The Teens Learning Code Twine for Beginners workshop is designed to be a hands-on experience. During the session, you’ll learn:

The basics of branching game narrative
How to create your own interactive narrative game
About weird games and how to make them
Practice your HTML5 & CSS skills

No experience needed!

This workshop will be taught by our guest instructor, Meagan Byrne. Meagan is a Métis (Swampy Cree/Newfoundlander) game designer from Hamilton, Ontario who has been making all kinds of games, including weird narrative ones, for over five years. She is co-director of Indigenous Routes, a nonprofit providing new media training for Indigenous youth, and Dames Making Games, a nonprofit dedicated to helping marginalized game designers and developers.

Costumes are optional but encouraged! 

Requirements

This is a Bring Your Own Laptop (BYOL) workshop, but we'll also have a limited number of laptops available to borrow. If you'll need a laptop, that's no problem! Just let us know in the registration form, and we can reserve one for you! If you are bringing your own computer, please be sure to bring your powercord.

Workshops are taught in English.


What is Teen Club?

Teen Club, a membership-based club for 13 to 17 year old girls, trans, and non-binary youth, is much more than learning how to code. It is also about learning problem solving skills, how to turn ideas into reality, exposure to what a future in technology could look like, networking and making friends!
