The training took place for five days, with the kids spending 3 hours each day after school.
Android was the platform the kids built game for. To let the knowledge sink in, the GDG Uyo team started teaching the kids the basics of computer science, programming and barest minimum Physics.
By the third day, the kids could display images on their phone screen and make them move, using Physics.
Speaking about the workshop, the GDG Uyo Organizer and lead for the workshop Hanson Johnson said “At the end of each day, the parents practically had to drag these kids away from the computers where they were building their apps. The kids were really excited with their new-found power. Being able to build games and see them work!”.
At the end of the workshop, there were four game apps from the 4 teams created.
Although none of the games were appstore ready, but this was a great achievement nonetheless.
The games are:
The most complete of them all. Your mission is to protect attacks on Nigeria by preventing Fuel Scarcity, Attacks, Political Party Crisis , Power problems etc from reaching the Map of Nigeria. The Map of Nigeria fades slightly with each failed attempt by you to protect it.
You have a static moon and one star by the moon. Wherever you touch on the screen, the star moves there.
This is a tricycle that drops and picks up people at different bus stops.
You see Hockey Pucks on the screen and hit them off as fast as you can for points.
