TeenTech Innovation Live: Game Design / Arloesedd Byw TeenTech: Dylunio Gemau

March 18 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am UTC+0

Virtual Event Virtual Event
Free

Game development is one of the UK’s most exciting and successful industries and there is a wide range of exciting technical and creative career opportunities.

Whether your students are interested in programming, art and design, or music and sound, this workshop will provide context for the subjects they’re studying and inspire them to get more involved.

We’ll cover different aspects of game design with some of the leading talents in the industry. We’ll look at current gaming trends and the technology that is pioneering the future of video games, as well as some of the issues the gaming industry faces.

Students then have the option to imagine and design a game of their own, tackling some of the issues discussed and imagining how technology could drive new gameplay experiences and make gaming more inclusive and accessible.

If the timings don’t work for your school, or if you can’t join the sessions live, don’t worry! All sessions will be available for playback during the programme and you can even send us questions beforehand for our experts to answer.

What is TeenTech Innovation Live?

TeenTech Innovation Live sessions bring the digital, scientific and engineering world to life for students aged 11-19. They focus on opportunities within a specific sector with input from local and national employers, with opportunities for students to work on real-world projects. We deliver these with volunteers from apprentice to CTO to answer questions from students. Led by our experienced tech reporters, students understand more about the emerging opportunities, different entry points, the technical and personal skills needed. Students are then stepped through an innovation challenge, where they build their own solutions to address real-world problems connected to the topic and value their own personal qualities. They will be given time to complete their projects and share them with us and then re-join our presenter and mentors to receive live feedback on their work.

How do TeenTech Innovation Live sessions work and how do we take part?

The sessions focus on opportunities within a specific sector with input from local and national employers and universities. All our sessions are led by science and technology broadcasters who will introduce your students to some of the most exciting people working in the industry – both locally, nationally and internationally The initial “kick-off” Innovation sessions will be broadcast live, usually on Wednesday mornings at 10:00am each week (lasting one hour). If you can't join us live, that's okay! You can still register and submit questions for our experts ahead of time. During the kick-off, students are set an optional topic-related challenge and the opportunity to submit further questions. The sessions will be available online for 7 days following their broadcast. Feedback sessions will be held each term where students will receive project feedback and have the opportunity to ask industry experts further questions.

What are the benefits of taking part?

  • The sessions are structured to offer the following opportunities for students and their teachers:
  • Connect with people working at all levels of engineering and technology
  • Find out more about the sector
  • Develop the skills which students, as well as industry, recognise as key to their future
  • Ways to enrich lessons in science, computing, maths, animation, web design, design and technology
  • A safe, interactive platform
  • Cross-curricular learning
  • Receive meaningful feedback on challenges undertaken

Datblygu gemau yw un o ddiwydiannau mwyaf cyffrous a llwyddiannus y DU ac mae ystod eang o gyfleoedd gyrfa technegol a chreadigol cyffrous.

P’un a oes gan eich myfyrwyr ddiddordeb mewn rhaglennu, celf a dylunio, neu gerddoriaeth a sain, bydd y gweithdy hwn yn rhoi cyd-destun ar gyfer y pynciau y maent yn eu hastudio ac yn eu hysbrydoli i gymryd mwy o ran.

Byddwn yn ymdrin â gwahanol agweddau ar ddylunio gemau gyda rhai o brif dalentau’r diwydiant. Byddwn yn ystyried tueddiadau gemio cyfredol a’r dechnoleg sy’n arloesi dyfodol gemau fideo, yn ogystal â rhai o’r materion sy’n wynebu’r diwydiant gemio.

Yna, mae gan fyfyrwyr yr opsiwn i ddychmygu a dylunio gêm eu hunain, gan fynd i’r afael â rhai o’r materion a drafodwyd a dychmygu sut y gallai technoleg yrru profiadau chwarae gemau newydd a gwneud gemio’n fwy cynhwysol a hygyrch.

Beth yw TeenTech Innovation Live?

Mae sesiynau Arloesedd Byw TeenTech yn cyflwyno’r byd gwyddonol a pheirianneg i ddisgyblion rhwng 11-19 oed. Maent yn canolbwyntio ar gyfleoedd o fewn sector penodol gyda mewnbwn gan gyflogwyr lleol a chenedlaethol, gyda chyfleoedd i fyfyrwyr weithio ar brosiectau go iawn. Rydym yn cyflwyno'r rhain gyda gwirfoddolwyr o brentis i CTO er mwyn ateb cwestiynau gan fyfyrwyr. Dan arweiniad gohebwyr technoleg profiadol, mae disgyblion yn deall mwy am gyfleoedd sy’n codi, gwahanol bwyntiau mynediad, y sgiliau technegol a phersonol angenrheidiol. Yna caiff myfyrwyr eu camu drwy her arloesi, lle maent yn adeiladu eu hatebion eu hunain i fynd i'r afael â phroblemau byd go iawn sy'n gysylltiedig â'r pwnc ac yn gwerthfawrogi eu rhinweddau personol eu hunain. Byddant yn cael amser i gwblhau eu prosiectau a'u rhannu gyda ni ac yna ail-ymuno â'n cyflwynydd a'n mentoriaid i gael adborth byw ar eu gwaith.

Sut mae sesiynau Arloesedd Byw TeenTech yn gweithio a sut mae cymryd rhan?

Maent yn canolbwyntio ar gyfleoedd o fewn sector penodol gyda mewnbwn gan gyflogwyr lleol a chenedlaethol a phrifysgolion. Caiff ein holl sesiynau eu harwain gan ddarlledwyr gwyddoniaeth a thechnoleg a fydd yn cyflwyno eich myfyrwyr i rai o'r bobl fwyaf cyffrous sy'n gweithio yn y diwydiant – yn lleol, yn genedlaethol ac yn rhyngwladol Bydd y sesiynau Arloesi "cychwyn" cychwynnol yn cael eu darlledu'n fyw, fel arfer ar foreau Mercher am 10:00am bob wythnos (sy'n para awr). Os na allwch ymuno â ni yn fyw, mae hynny'n iawn! Gallwch barhau i gofrestru a chyflwyno cwestiynau i'n harbenigwyr ymlaen llaw. Yn ystod y gic gyntaf, gosodir her ddewisol sy'n gysylltiedig â phwnc a'r cyfle i gyflwyno cwestiynau pellach. Bydd y sesiynau ar gael ar-lein am 7 diwrnod ar ôl eu darlledu. Cynhelir sesiynau adborth bob tymor lle bydd myfyrwyr yn derbyn adborth prosiect ac yn cael cyfle i ofyn cwestiynau pellach i arbenigwyr y diwydiant.

  • Rhagor o wybodaeth am y sector
  • Datblygu'r sgiliau y mae myfyrwyr, yn ogystal â diwydiant, yn eu cydnabod fel rhai allweddol i'w dyfodol
  • Ffyrdd o gyfoethogi gwersi mewn gwyddoniaeth, cyfrifiadura, mathemateg, animeiddio, dylunio gwe, dylunio a thechnoleg
  • Llwyfan diogel, rhyngweithiol
  • Dysgu trawsgwricwlaidd
  • Derbyn adborth ystyrlon ar yr heriau a gyflawnir
