Rabbit Rampage!

A new Easter themed game design workshop where children get to design graphics and levels using Educraft’s bespoke ‘Pixel Dash’ game engine to create their own Rabbit Rampage! game.

The Pixel Dash tile editor allows students to unleash their creativity by giving them the freedom to create pixel art graphics and animations on a large, 24 x 24 pixel grid.

Participants can design taxing levels as well as code in modifications to the game engine.

All children will be able to play and share their finished game with friends and family on Educraft’s website.

We also have a number of themed craft and physical activities to offer a fully rounded experience.

BEADCRAFT: Create unique pixel sprites using fuse-beads and turn them into beautiful key rings, jewellery or baubles to take home.

PAPERCRAFT: Build a paper replica of a classic computer or video game character to take home.

RETRO GAMES: Play arcade classics from the early 1980s (such as Pacman, Frogger and Space Invaders), classic SEGA games (including the original version of Sonic) or retro Nintendo games (like the original Super Mario Brothers).

BOARD GAMES: Try our selection of carefully chosen board games that ensure that we are able to continue our Pixel theme without the need for excessive periods of screen time.

BEAT-SABER: Build up a sweat as you follow choreographed lightsaber sequences in time to music in this twist on the cult VR video game.

Each session includes free food and an informative and interactive discussion on the health and environmental benefits of eating more plant-based foods.

HEALTHY FOOD: Educraft works with local ethical providers (such as vegetarian cafes or restaurants) to provide nutritious, locally prepared vegetarian and/or vegan hot meals as well as healthy snacks and fruit.
