Easter Game Making Event at Science and Industry Museum

27th March to 6th April
Volunteer to deliver game making activities to families during the Easter holidays.

The GLAM world is made up of Galleries, Libraries, Archives and Museums. These sites are a fantastic place to get experience in informal education. Digital Game Making is a fun activity which is a great way to learn about media creation, making graphics and pulling it together with coding. New tools have emerged in recent years which make it much easier for young people and non-experts to make fun, playable games without complex code.

Over Easter, Science and Industry Museum is running their Power Up gallery for visitors to play on over 160 consoles. You’ll be adding to their spring holiday programme of events, which is gaming themed, by inviting visitors to make their own digital games.

We are looking for volunteers to support and deliver this activity.

Commitment: We would ideally like you to commit to coming to 2 of the 4 days. 

Skills needed: None too technical but you should be up for playing about with technology to try different things out. In other words a “I’ll give it a go” attitude. 

Other Info: A lunch will be provided we’ll take your dietary requirements. 

Next Steps  

Sign up for this activity to get onto our mailing list. After the deadline we will contact volunteers with further details of next steps.

If you volunteer then you will get a 90 minute training session to support young people and families making games.

If you enjoy taking part in this event, you can also join RISE’s ongoing Digital GLAM project. The

Digital GLAM Project

is a Manchester Met University project which trains and provides experience for students and volunteer staff members to help young people and families to make media and games in GLAM environments.
