3rd was the start of the 3rd Annual Game Jam hosted by Code In the
Schools. I attend this event and thought it went very well. It was very
exciting and informative to participate with all the talented young coders. The
level of enthusiasm from the participants made it very enjoyable experience for
everyone. While observing the process some of the kids took to create the games
was unbelievably incredible. Some groups used storyboards, some just jumped
right into the process to make the games right from the start. While there had
been first timers (myself included) there had been previous participants that
in all, I think Code in the Schools organization is doing an excellent job of
engaging more inner city students into the wonderful world of coding. Here are
a few pictures I took from the experience.
