Game Making with the Arduino Environment Class

Let's make an Arduino-compatible microcontroller called the Teensy 3.0 into a little hand-held gaming machine!

In 4 weeks, you'll learn to solder and build your own game hardware--we'll use a full color mini LCD display and a Teensy 3.0 microcontroller as the core, and you can add peripherals like knobs and switches.

Each week, you'll come away with a working game (Musical Lights, Simon, Etch-a-sketch, and Pong) on your new upgraded hardware. You'll also learn some programming basics by starting with a working game and then modifying and improving it. On your final week, if you'd like to start building your own game instead of Pong, feel free! Get as far as you can that evening and come back later for help from the community (membership is $50 per month).

This will be the first in a series of 4 classes I'll be teaching during the month of June. Each will be held on Tuesday at 6:30 PM, cost is $20 per class ($80 for 4 classes), plus the hardware kit $50 (so, a total of $130). EnjiGo members pay for the hardware kit only (classes are free).

    Great first class. We had 7 students plus assistants and almost everyone came away with a working Teensy with blinky lights! Well done all.

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
