Explore the world of Alice in Wonderland and her friends virtually with Pocket Code and Scratch at the #AliceGameJam during the Computer Science Education Week between December 7th and December 13th 2015. Create your own program about Alice and get the chance of being part of something bigger.
Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland was published in 1865. Since then, the adventures of Alice, the White Rabbit and the other fabulous figures in the book have fascinated young and old for 150 years. Now, between the 7th and 13th of December 2015, the Alice Game Jam invites you to recreate the spirit of this magical world by creating fun new games about Alice and her friends.
Alice follows a white rabbit into its hole and comes to a magical, imaginative, and exciting world. She experiences some gorgeous and thrilling adventures on her journey through this wonderland, meeting new and marvelous creatures like the Mad Hatter or the Cheshire Cat...
With Pocket Code we aim to inspire teenagers to create their own games and interactive stories directly on their smartphones without any previous knowledge in a "Lego-Style" way of programming. What theme for our first Game Jam could be better than Alice in Wonderland?
The Game Jam will take place during the international Computer Science Education Week from December 7th to December 13th 2015.
