To celebrate Cruinniú na nÓg, the national Creative Ireland Children's Festival, using our ground-breaking Digital Skills Virtual Classroom WhizzKids have created 4 videos to  show you how to make some of the most popular types of video games! 

These workshops are ideal for children aged 8-12 years old. No prior skills are required, once you have watched the 4 workshops you will be coding and designing like a pro!

The software used to create these wonderful 3D games is Kodu Game Lab. It was created by Microsoft FUSE labs and is free to download from https://www.kodugamelab.com/ or the play store for Android devices.
