Hack Club at 4H

This Saturday, we are hosting an event in celebration of International Nodebot day.

We will be building little sumobots using lasercut frames and simple electronics powered by Arduino and the Johnny-Five javascript library.  When we finish our bots, we will test them out in the sumo ring!

Last meeting, we created Dodge, a video game where you move your dinosaur out of the way of falling rocks.

In this meeting, we will be creating a game similar to Flappy Bird, Pitfall and Defender, or for the modern among us, Geometry Dash.  This one is called Platformer.

Come join us on May 20 at 11a at our Club Garage!
