Build Your Own Video Games at Game Day

Join us for two exciting events that will combine your kids' passion for gaming with a fun and educational day at the Mill!

  • Design Your Own Game Controller, 10am-2pm in the Lobby   Do your kids want to learn how to create their very own video game controller?! Inspired by our popular Banana Piano exhibit, these activities provide a brand new way to interact with video games. Kids will rely on everyday objects and the human body’s ability to conduct small amounts of electricity to make their very own video game controller. This workshop is designed for all ages and is free with admission. No registration necessary.
  • Build Your Own Video Game, 11am-3pm in the classrooms    Youth, ages 8- 18, looking to dive deeper into the world of video game development can register for the $60 "Make Your Own Video Game" workshop. This exclusive workshop is hosted by Game Worlds. Real life game developers will teach students everything they need to know to start building their own game. Learn coding, game development and software design in this half-day workshop. Computers available for those who do not bring their own laptops. Register here
