The Grand Avenue Middle School Library hosted its first Grand Gaming Showcase on June 4-5.
Earlier this year, Michelle Biancardo’s seventh grade Coding classes created their own video games using the Hatch and Python programming languages. This event showcased the students creative work in designing multi-level, gravity platformers and vintage arcade style games, quiz games and other informative challenges.
“Students were invited to get a special pass from lunch to attend the event,” Biancardo said. “Once there, they could play the games created by their peers. There was also a section where students could explore the Scratch website to learn more about what can be designed or try their hand at creating something themselves.”
