This is Crowdsourcing Mornings! This post takes place every weekday morning and highlights one crowdsourcing project I liked from Kickstarter, Indiegogo, or other crowdsourcing websites.
Please read our crowdsourcing guidelines at: https://geekalabama.com/media-kit-pr/geek-alabama-crowdsourcing-guidelines
The Arcade Coder is a tactile, programmable game console, empowering families to become confident and seriously playful games designers. This revolutionary new way to play and invent games will ignite everyone’s imagination and totally transform family game night forever. The Arcade Coder is a 12” x 12” board with 144 multi-colored LED buttons that are all fully programmable and controllable. An evolution of the traditional board game, the Arcade Coder teaches kids aged 6+ (and their grown-ups!) easy-to-learn block coding and how to design their own games.
Each level is more challenging than the next, which means coding and creative problem-solving skills are tested at every turn. Once all of the skill badges have been collected, you’ll be crowned Games Master. Empower kids to become a confident game designer! The Arcade Coder teaches kids the principles of game design and block-coding. Kids also learn the foundation of game mechanics, like speed and point systems through the Games Studio app.
Testing with kids has always been core to Tech Will Save Us’s product development process. From workshops and research, the team at Tech Will Save Us knew that gaming as a theme was appealing to children of all ages and an amazing way to introduce valuable learning outcomes in a fun and creative way.
As of September 9th, this project has raised $69,000 of their $61,422 goal. This project has 21 days left to raise as much as it can. For a pledge of $2 , you will get project updates. For a pledge of $99, you will get one Arcade Coder. To learn more and to pledge money, go to: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/techwillsaveus/arcade-coder?
