  • A Day
  • REMINDER: Thursday March 30th is Step Up Day. You all will not be here. Instead I will be giving you an at home assignment. This means two things, Thursday is still technically a school day, and you must bring back a very basic form back by Wednesday. This form lets you and your parents know you won’t be here and you have to do some small amount of work. I will let you know your “HW” on Wednesday. Forms?
  • TODAY 7/8 with be destroying the room and bring it over to CAWD1. At least 10 computers are being moved over, so we need to clean our computers on Wednesday.
  • We will not be having real science till April 10th. Your “Homework” till then is to have your sumo robot ready by then.
  • National Manatee Appreciation Day

game teams

We have 1 week left. Please communicate with your teammate about what Goals you still have. Make a realistic check list and figure out the plan.

crunch time

We are at crunch time. We have presentations and making sure our games are presentable. Please keep in mind this is a pitch. It should look good and have good ideas. Doesn’t need to be call of duty.

UPDATE (March 31st) FRIDAY we will best testing our games AND doing presentations FIRST THING. 

Here is a list of points to cover in your presentation:

  • Planning
  • Concept Art
  • Storyboarding
  • Game Play
  • UI (User Interface)
  • Design (Inspiration, Concepts, 2D vs 3D)
  • Your Code (Show an example, explain)

Your presentations should be 10 minutes long. No More and probably no less to get the most of the experience. I’d build bullet points of each of these topics so it doesn’t seem scripted. 

Please use the feedback from your classmates to make strategic decision about your game.

Tomorrow is national Walk in the Park day AND national Pencil day. So tomorrow assignment is pretty easy.

I want you all to do a ONE page free write. The topic of the writing is stress and anxiety. Now I know this is a hard topic to write about, but this exercise will hopefully open your eyes to what makes you stressed out n a daily basis.

The purpose of the assignment is not for me to read and “help” you. It’s for you. So it’s more of a “check I did it” assignment. Instead of me checking for grammar and mechanics.


  • One Page
  • Topic – Stress /  Anxiety
  • Reflection

This is due at 9:40 on Friday morning. NOT next Wednesday.

2:05 Dismissal
