The iCare Games Exhibition Project Update iCare
Hi Everyone, here is a quick update on the iCare Game Exhibition Fundraiser.
iCare have already ran classes for a while now, teaching SEN students coding using Phaser and GDevelop. These are hands-on workshops where the students can learn through practical activities. From these workshops which usually have around 20 - 30 students, they have selected 5 who showed talent and are interested.
These students (and their parents) have formed a game development team. They are calling themselves the Find Differences Games Studio. That's because being SEN children, they were always subjected to criticism for being different. So the team wants to tell the world to come and find their differences, because they are proud to be different, proud to be who they are.
After discussions, they have decided to focus on making a series of educational games aiming at teaching Chinese. It will be a series of word search style games which will be allow players to learn different Chinese sayings through playing. Over the next month, they will be meeting up regularly to make this goal into reality.
For these meetings to happen, iCare would have to incur various costs such as venue hire and allowances for the students. So we hope to see more support coming this way to make it worth their while!
And for some good news: our fundraiser has caught the eyes of the Fundition team, and they will be providing extra support during the exhibition via upvoting the exhibition games and posts. As a return, we would feature Fundition on all of the games and posts for this exhibition, as well as featuring Fundition at each of the Game Studio's meetups. We are grateful for this collaboration, and it will be a great chance promote Steem to the rest of the world!
That's all for now, stay tuned for more updates soon!
