Grade: 9-12

Teacher Name: Robert Hunter

Purpose and Rationale:

Anyone who's ever put a coin in an arcade knows the thrill of dashing around bad guys or working with your friends to fend off an alien invasion.  But what all goes into creating one of those flashing marvels?  How are they designed?

The Video Game Design students at New Tech High @ Coppell work hard to program and develop a variety of different games.  However, they don’t get to experience how their games are delivered.

A CISD Ed Foundation grant would give our Game Design students the opportunity to create an arcade machine from scratch.  Yes, programming games is the heart of the class, but game delivery and experience are just as important.  Students would be expanding their programming into areas of blueprinting and graphic design, carpentry, and electronics.  The final product would be a 4 person retro gaming pedestal that can be used throughout the school for events, fundraisers, and some much needed fun!

Please help us fund this grant that would provide buttons, wire, joysticks, wood, tools, emulators and a myriad of other components necessary to provide this amazing opportunity.

Strategy: 

We will be designing and building the arcade machine as part of a class project.  Learners will explore both programming and engineering.  We can then tailor the games we made throughout the year to be played on an arcade machine.  This helps fulfill the career and technology pathway for Computer Science.

External Resources: none

Evaluation Summary: A successful project will expand our game programers expertise into how their games are experienced by the public.  It will also develop alternative skills like carpentry and electronics that could become a life-long passion. 

Estimated Completion Date: April 2023
