Lights, Rings, Pings and Dings - Arcade Building

As part of our STEAM series we will be breaking down and doing hands on work in building from scratch an Arcade Game. Maybe it won't (or maybe it will!) have all of the bells and whistles of an actual modern day game, but campers will have to plan, build, and test their arcade game. Campers will visit Arcades and get inside looks at how the machines operate and have fun playing some of the machines during different trips. At the end of the week campers can showcase their Arcade game to the rest of the camp. To give you a better idea of what the campers "might" be building for the week, as a reference Click This to go to a Youtube video called "Caines Arcade".
