Game Changers (Gr. 3 – 6)

Program Highlights 

Students in grades 3 – 6 join Museum staff on a tour of two new exhibits about video games. Game Changers, developed and produced by the Canada Science and Technology Museum looks at what shapes the player’s experience and explores how innovations have transformed the way we interact with computer technology. Ready To Play, the Museum of Industry’s own exhibit, features studios that create video games right here in Nova Scotia.   

The program explores the relationship between art, technology and story telling. In addition to the exhibit tour, students learn how video games use pixels to create images and create a “program” to move a partner through a series of tasks.
